Color inspiration can come from anywhere.  As you can see from the pictures below, you can find color schemes in nature, on the sidewalk, or at a coffee shop, and these are just a few examples.  It’s crazy to think that with all the colors in the world we often reach for black in our closets (or is it just me?).

Last Friday we explored the color wheel.  We learned about how colors are put together, and some different ways you can use the wheel to come up with your own combinations.  I don’t know about you, but I learned a lot.  I also had to think a lot, and often when I have to think a lot, I tend to doubt myself a lot.  This Friday, I am reaching for inspiration from everywhere, also called the internet.  Check out my Pinterest board Color Schemes, it does the color work for you.  Pick out your favorite combos and go to work.  Now this is way easier on the brain!  I have some examples of the color schemes and crochet work below.

See how easy it is to put a colorful piece together?  I whipped these up yesterday in no time because I didn’t have to think about the color scheme.  If you are stuck in a color rut, take an easy way out and use a pre-made color scheme, it won’t let you down.

Happy Crocheting!
