A typical My Rose Valley Colour Palette







It is all about colours. Always. It is the choice of colours that makes our hearts skip. Our blood run like crazy through our bodies. Producing dopamine for our fragile brains and making us feel... HAPPY! That is why crochet is such a beautiful craft, hobby, art, activity, therapy and medicine. Is there anything more fun than taking out a box or basket of yarn and just sort through it? Wind up balls, sort into brights and pastels, naturals, autumn, spring and Christmas??? Lets do purples and pinks. Greens and blues. Yellow and pinks. Oh yes, throw in some orange too. 

Every combination soothes a different soul. And we all have our own favorite palette of colors. Mine is something close to the above. It depends on the season, but most often I return to a light, fresh and crisp palette, the palette I used for both my Swedish Scrappy Happy V-stitch Blanket and My Circle In Square Blanket.

As I know many of you work with the popular acrylic yarn Special DK from Stylecraft when making blankets and throws, I decided to put together a colour chart in this yarn for the Circle In Square Blanket. I've done my best to match most of the colours used and all you need to do is add scraps of similar shades from your already existing stash of acrylic yarn.

I had so much fun putting together this colour chart, because that is also playing with colors. And playing with layout programs and graphic design is also a great source of HAPPY for me, so why not? I hope the typical My Rose Valley colour palette can inspire you for a new make. And I'm curious to know what your favorite palette is? Where in the wheel of colour are you the most happy?

  1. I really enjoy choosing colours for my projects, too. But I'd happily just take your colour suggestions and love them as they are.

  2. Lovely. You're right, people can almost be identified by their colour palette. I love blues, greens and greys. And pale natural tones as well. Dare I say beige..? CJ xx

  5. Hi Annette,
    Well, strangely, I am using reds, bronze, oranges, a bit of rose there, dusky purple there, and a splash of turquoise. The colors of the desert. I made a blanket for my niece and had to base it around her fave color -orange. She was definite: no blue, no green. Then I had to find yarn I could afford, that was soft, and had a fairly large range of colors. Went with I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.

    But! No matter how hard I try to get the blankets to be "twin" size. they come out "king" size. Oh well, more people can get under the blanket at the same time, right?!? She can get her entire family, three cats, the dog, the goat. Well maybe not all three cats... : )

  7. Thank you for this. I find your color choices very inspiring! The red border on the duck egg blue blanket is just perfect - I may have to copy this.

  8. How lovely! I so agree, crochet and color are all of the above to equal happy, my sweet spot is in the cool ranges of blues and greens, sprinkle in some pinks and greys and I'm happy indeed.

  9. I love that you've put together some colours using the stylecraft special DK line. I know it's not everyone's fave yarn, but it's so affordable and works up beautifully! I can't bring myself to do a project that requires so much "putting together", sigh, I have a WIP now for the past 3 yrs, just can't put-it-together!! I'd use these colours and do stripes, I adore stripes. Love your blog, been a watcher for a long time, but never posted before :)

  10. It is all about colors and sometimes textures and designs. I m a knitter and a quilter. I feel the same thrill when I rifle through my fabrics.
