Coastal Cosy Colours

I’m thinking of making another Cosy Blanket using Coastal Colours.

Can you help me decide on the colour palette.

The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK

Colours:

1st Row: Cypress, Cloud Blue, Sherbert, Sage

2nd Row: Sage, Denim, Cream, Storm, Petrol

3rd Row: Camel, Soft Peach, Grey,

Bottom Row: Lincoln, Buttermilk, Silver

With the pink – I’m thinking of soft sunsets over the sea

or without the pink: sand, sea, sky, rocks, sand dunes, cliffs

  2. I think the pink you have is kind of namby pamby–I like the idea of a saturated rose or some other brighter, deeper color, to add zip. Your colors are all very much in the same range of value, I think (or do I have any idea what I’m talking about??)

    • Of course you do Kerry!!! I have ordered ‘Blush’ to see if it fits in with the mix. I’m going for soft and calming – not sure if I’ll succeed but it is fun having a go. Thank you for your input, it is much appreciated, every single comment is helpful to me in making up my mind. ❀

  3. Try a deeper pink- fuschia.

  4. I agree with the genreal opinion here – pink would look cute but perhaps a different shade of pink would be more appropriate πŸ™‚ Cant wait to see it as it comes together πŸ™‚

  6. I think the pink would work, especially if you have something in a periwinkle that would help finish the sunset. I would consider trading the cypress for some thing in the stone/sand/tan look. Not cream, but lighter than the camel.

  7. I like both colourways, but I think a little pink would be good; however, I agree with some of the others … perhaps not so “baby” pink — maybe something a little deeper, almost dusty rose or peachy. Whatever you choose, I’m sure it will be lovely!

  8. I’d go without the pink. I love the other colours though. Do you have different pink? I wonder if that one is just a little pale but a slightly pinker pink might work, maybe pale rose or similar. It’s going to be beautiful anyway 😊 perhaps try a row with pink, it can easily be frogged.

  9. Presuming they were probably Stylecraft colours, I got out my Stylecraft colour sticks to get a real idea of the colours as photos can be deceptive but couldn’t decide what the goldish one in the middle was, though I guessed ‘camel’. I presume the pink is ‘candy floss’. I was inclined to think that Fondant might work better with the other colours. It would add a bit of contrast though maybe you want something where the colours all blend together. Not too keen on the ‘candy floss’.

    • Gosh Jane I so appreciate you giving this so much of your time and attention. Perhaps I should put the colours in the post. The pink is Soft Peach. You are right about the Camel and the yellow is Buttermilk. I am going to edit the post right now. A huge thank you! ❀

      • Stylecraft have introduced quite a few colours since I got my samples so I don’t have Cypress, Lincoln or Buttermilk. However Soft peach is such an innocuous colour that personally I think it will blend better than the pink as it looks on the screen. So I would go for the pink. Mind you pink says ‘dawn’ rather than ‘sunset’ to me. But both are good!

    Tough one. Initially i was thinking without pink. But then i thought maybe a small bit could brighten it up just a tad.

  12. I prefer no pink in that palette. It’s a subjective opinion however πŸ™‚
