Today’s Eye For Colour takes a closer look at Colour #188 a gorgeous blend of yellow, blue, green and red. I offer these videos hopefully providing customers with a similar experience to selecting a colour palette and thread choices as you would do in a shop.
Many of the colours I feature are bright and really pack a punch when it comes to needlepoint or craft projects. While Colour #188 is no different, I really love this particular combination as each colour “pops”;
Colour #188 is a stunning Autumn-inspired blend of yellow, blue, green and red.
I introduced this colour combination back in 2015 and shortly after decided to use it as my focus colour in my Starry Nights project. You can read about it in this blog post.
While the thread kit for this project has since been discontinued, I believe the palette below would provide a good starting point should you wish to stitch this lovely design. I would emphasize that if I were to stitch Starry Nights I would add more values to each of the colours shown in the video to provide good contrast.
I have added several colours of solid colours in DMC size 5 Perle cotton including:
- Greens = 986, 988
- Yellows = 742, 972
- Burgundy/Reds = 498, 814
- Blue = 939
I’ve also added some Rainbow Gallery products which include the following:
- Neon Rays 60
- Entice 52, 236
- Glisten 46
Colour #188 is one of my best sellers. I hope this inspires you to give it a try in your next needlework project. Enjoy.
