It’s time to get spooky this crafting season, with a creepy-cute, cackling color combination… Witching Hour. This lace weight silk yarn is sure to trick or treat your October craft projects in the best way possible. Now of course, this powerful purple and green colorway can easily stand on its own two feet, buckled shoes and all! For those of us in the Yarn Of The Month Club who want to go the extra mile, though, we’ve pulled together a set of inspiration palettes to get those color wheels turning!
The Crystal Good Witch
For the year-round seer, light purples and blues illuminate the ethereal veil, through thick and thin! A touch of seafoam green represents good intentions and good health, while the vibrant green of this colorway gives an extra jolt of energy to the usual meditations! Being lively and calm at the same time is an artform… no-no, it’s a craft!
The Secret Spell
Embrace the mystery of hidden things, twisted branches, and how the ravens sing with deep, dark, and cloudy shades of midnight blue, green, and purple. This palette is sure to beckon you further into the mist, through the moonlight, and past the hollowed out tree… If your October Yarn Of The Month is already pre-dedicated to handmade Halloween decorations, this is the palette for you. Go all out! (Because you’ll never get out alive.)
Fun statistical fact: Not everyone likes Halloween. But everyone does like wine. Okay, maybe not everyone… if you’re looking for something a little less holiday inspired, though, this purple and green pattern does make for a lovely starter to a vineyard color theme! Just add deeper sap green and merlot accents, and voila! Enchanted decanting.
Nothing says Halloween like… not talking, because sweet snack season has officially begun, and your mouth is already full! It’s a treat fiend’s dream… Candy apples, popcorns, chocolates, gummies… With golden pie-crust and berry sauce purple, this palette learned young to ditch the plastic jack-o-lantern, and bring a pillowcase instead. (Is there still time to knit a 10lb. sack for the nephew?? We’re trying to break a record…)
The Magic Show Don’t Tell
Who doesn’t love a good fantasy story? This palette puts the book in spellbook, with warm, rich browns, and candlelight yellows to read by. If wind storms and mild power outages get you a little bit excited, this is the look for you! Get lost in the leather-bound edges of an enchanted forest… who knows what you’ll uncover while you’re there!
Happy Creepy Crafting!
For all things Halloween, we love finding new ways to do purple, orange, and green! This year, purple and green are taking the spotlight, but… Orange you glad I didn’t say your craft projects are boo-tiful?
Yeah. I know. That pun is gonna haunt me, too. Maybe I should’ve asked for a… ghostwriter…
