Oh, sweet September! Bonfires, cardigans, pumpkin spice… and a bold, fiery yarn to craft with! Wondering what colors to pair with your Yarn of The Month? Let’s take a look at some color palette ideas, and the color psychology behind the mood they each have!
September’s colorway is no doubt a warm color scheme, but paired with a deep indigo and a cornflower blue, this color palette goes from glowing warm to dramatic, unstoppable, and white hot! Make a bold, smart move and blaze your path forward when the smart blue comes in to pair with the passionate red, curious purple, and quick yellow!
The Magic Within
This bold red, yellow, and purple combination doesn’t have to be a wildfire to the outside world. Use deep bluish greens and warm purples to create a secret garden around this colorway, and let it sparkle embers like a lantern’s glow! This palette is intuitive, sure-footed, and sensory!
Summer… over? Nope! Sun’s out, fun’s out! Keep the party going with bright teals and yellows for a fresh, fearless, firework feel! These cheery yellows show no signs of slowing down any time soon, while the curious, chatty teal is ready to go out and explore!
Baking Is The Best Part
Slip right into the September season by taking the chill out of the house at 475°… That’s right, cherry pie! Glow up the oven with sweet, sensational tones of subdued reddish-pinks and soft, graham cracker browns. Cradled by the steadiness of warm neutrals, staying in has never smelled so good.
Remember when this sort of weather meant new Chuck Taylors and a walkman (...or iPod ;)) at the bus stop? Take a walk down memory lane with the spunky gumption of 90’s jewel tones, and pretend that September is still the beginning of the year. Whoa… That’s like, a total mind-game. This sassy shade of teal is curious, but it is greyed-down, so it isn’t too interested, or anything. You know, whatever.
However you choose to swatch and style your September, Happy Crafting! It’s a great time to be a knitter or crocheter, full of creation, and opportunities… because everyone you know is about to get chilly.
