Picking the proper color palette for your project can be daunting. Sandra suggests a number of options to help narrow things down. Picking a main color to build your palette around is a great place to start. From there, try selecting complementary, split complimentary, analogous, or gradient colors to go with your main color.
Color Picking Tools
Still unsure on where to start? Sandra suggests utilizing one of the many digital tools available for assisting with color selection. Some of her favorite apps allow you to use a photo of a color composition you like to isolate a palette. Additional websites also offer pre-made palettes for endless inspiration.
Once you have your colors selected, the amount and order in which you utilize them can drastically alter the appearance of your motifs. Sandra suggests utilizing a photo collage app that can allow you to get a better sense of how your colored motifs will distribute across a larger project.
Never let the fear of color slow you down again, and let Crochet Kaleidoscope be an endless supply of inspiration for your crocheting.
