COLOUR THE­ORY

Simply Crochet - - CROCHET COLOUR CLASS -

Anal­o­gous colours like green and blue sit side-by-side on the colour wheel; com­ple­men­tary colours sit op­po­site each other.

A com­ple­men­tary colour scheme takes two colours sit­ting op­po­site each on the colour wheel. This ar­range­ment pro­vides the strong­est pos­si­ble con­trast be­tween two colours, how­ever, it can pay to tread cau­tiously as the com­bi­na­tion can be jar­ring. A sim­ple way to make this work is by play­ing with tints, which is when white is added. In this case, I have used Pe­ony Pink for the trop­i­cal leaf bag.
