Today we’re featuring a pattern entitled, Asymmetrical Copper by Jeff Kulick. You will find the pattern in the November/December issue of Needle Pointers published by the American Needlepoint Guild.
This is our first spring sample featuring two new colours from my spring collection, Colours #78 and #79. It is sure to brighten your spirits! We’ve shared small sections of larger designs many times on the blog and today is another example.
The original design was stitched in an autumn palette of colours with the addition of lime green and blue but our sample is a bright and cheerful version celebrating the upcoming spring season. The sample is the central section of the design measuring about 3 ¼ inches on 18 count mono canvas.
What Colours Did We Use to Create Asymmetrical Copper
Size 5 Perle cotton in the following colours:
I mentioned in the post on Monday that both the new spring colours would look equally lovely if you wished to create a fall palette.
We added a black and gold metallic as well as a copper metallic which gives you an idea. Personally, I really like the copper metallic and could easily feature more of this if creating a palette.
AND since we are featured RED this month, what about adding Colour #134 in cherry reds to this sample. Always worth experimenting!
