COLOUR THEORY

Simply Crochet - - CROCHET COLOUR CLASS -

A tri­adic colour scheme works with 3 colours evenly spaced on the colour wheel; here Kate is us­ing yel­low, pur­ple and blue-green A tri­adic colour scheme takes three evenly-spaced colours from around the colour wheel and places them to­gether. It’s my favourite way to work with colours, cre­at­ing an even pal­ette that finely bal­ances con­trast and har­mony. It’s also a won­der­ful way of en­sur­ing that the scheme is nei­ther too hot (reds and or­anges) nor too cold (blues and greens). In this is­sue’s scarf pat­tern, amber warmth (Mus­tard) is in­stantly chilled with a teal (Petroleum) and pur­ple (Plum) back­drop. The amber re­ally pops!
