I introduced this pattern this fall. Since then I’ve color planned it several times. As with anything you do often, you begin to see patterns. I decided to share the method I am using to color plan this pattern with you.
You will need three pieces (3″ x 36″) of eight different wools. Organize them roughly in color order. Here are the ones I am using for this color plan:
The customer asked for brown, beige, green, gold with accents of teal.
I will be adding my favorite teal, B11, as the beauty line and veins. The background is a brown texture and the border will be a slighly darker brown texture.
Now you just have to figure how you will use each of the wools in each leaf. I wrote a post to get you started with ideas.
Update: This method was used to hook this rug. The wools were different.
