This week is all about Pantone’s Colour of the Year – Living Coral. As I mentioned in Monday’s post, Colour Complements Colour #39 is my interpretation of Living Coral. The stitch sample above measures about 4 inches on 18 count canvas and was stitched using size 5 perle cottons. The sample is designed by Laura Perin called the 2009 Diamond Ornament and is offered as a freebie on her website HERE.
This is the colour palette used and you will need one skein of each of the colours listed in a size 5 perle cotton
Colour Complements Colour #39 – “Living Coral”
Colour Complements Colour #18 – greens
Colour Complements Colour #23 – yellows, blues, coral, greens
Colour Complements Colour #21 – greens/yellows
DMC Size 5 Perle Cotton #819 – pink
You could easily add a small border of Kreinik braid surrounding the center eyelet stitch for a little bling!
