Choose the perfect combination of colors for your projects every time! Discover which hues play well together, what bonds them and which guidelines you can rely on for success.

Color Confidence

Designer Franklin Habit shares his journey through color, from a childhood of neutrals to an understanding of the full palette of choices available to knitters. He’ll teach you an efficient and speedy method of swatching that will help you evaluate how your yarns work together.

Color Tools & Color Harmonies

Begin exploring the color wheel, to find harmonies that please you. Learn about the vibrancy of complementary colors and the quieter friendship of analogous colors. Simple geometry expands your choices for three- and four-color combinations.

Temperature & Chroma

Gain an understanding of color temperatures, of warms and cools, and learn about chroma: all the colors that can be created by mixing a hue with white, black or gray. You’ll find yourself looking at your yarn stash in a whole new light!

Value & Dominance

Good value control can help you make a pattern look the way you want. Franklin shows how to determine the values of your yarns with the aid of a variety of methods and tools, then discusses color dominance, including which colors tend to recede and which ones stand out.

Avoiding Inbred Color Schemes

It’s easy to get into a rut of choosing colors that share similar qualities, creating inbred color schemes. Learn how to break out of that rut, with some possibly surprising strategies. Franklin shows you how!

Beyond The Color Wheel

Inspiration really is all around you. Franklin helps you nail down the particulars and use them to choose color combinations that strike your fancy. You’ll also get Franklin’s rules of thumb for color proportions. Change them up and get a whole new look!

Applying Color Theory to Projects

Franklin has designed two projects that will showcase your new skills as a colorist. The Blips cowl is a simple slipped-stitch pattern. The Bubble hat includes stranded colorwork. Franklin explains the key techniques for both, then sends you on your way to choose your hues!
