COLOUR THE­ORY

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

Simply Crochet - - BABY BLANKET -

This is­sue’s cush­ion cover project uses a square tetrad scheme, which takes two pairs of com­ple­men­tary colours, evenly spaced around the colour wheel, and places them to­gether. To pre­vent this com­bi­na­tion from be­com­ing over­pow­er­ing, look at us­ing dif­fer­ent tints and tones of the se­lected shades. The re­sult­ing ef­fect is en­tic­ingly colour­ful but pleas­ingly com­ple­men­tary. See be­low for more com­bos to try.
