Trios of Summer Colour

Stay Awhile

Stay Awhile in Mink, Peony and Birch

I promised some ideas for colour combinations for a 3-colour Stay Awhile Shawl (see previous post), and here they are. I used Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Cotton colours because I just love this palette. There are so many gorgeous colours, waiting to be combined!

I created each set with the Main colour in the centre of the group and a contrast on either side. This is because in Stay Awhile the Contrasts won’t be striped together, just with the Main colour. But lots of these combination will work equally well with the Main and Contrast colours rearranged. And they’d work well in other patterns I’m sure – you can just be inspired by the colours.

I’ve pinned some of my favourite combinations to my Inspiration Loves Colour Pinterest boards, where you can find more ideas for combining colours.
