New Fall Color Palette Reflected in my Newest Fiber Design

Though I have always liked some Turqoise in some things in my life, as Pantone (and others) decided that it was the "2010 Color of the Year" -- I took a look at putting some Turquoise in some of my "Designs in Fiber".

This is the first time I have incorporated Turquoise into a Fall or Autumn or Harvest Seasonal design - intentionally. It is in the current Fall Color Palette!

It is sort of an experiment for me, though I have found that I really like the combination of the Yellow/Orange/Turquoise -- and I did this design with contrasting rounds - not just for the colors - but the contrasts really shows off the crochet design.

Here is a closeup, to see the details more clearly:

I am curious how others feel about this -- it is Thread Crochet (considered Vintage or Old-Fashioned by some) in some new, modern, lively colors!

(You can find it in my Etsy shop and I want to also include it in my Design Style Guide Portfolio.)

Leave a comment, if you would like!

I like the contrast of the colors you chose and it definitely shows of your crochet.
I see a lot of turquoise this year and I have incorporated it into my mosaics as well.

I agree! I love the contrast in colors, and lately I've been drawn to Teal, and Sunny Yellow or Orange! It's so great that these days doilies can be full of color. I've just started crocheting Filet and Doilywork, and it has been a challenge! You're work is beautiful!
