I love your new chart, superstitch! I was thinking of doing something similar--the two layers of color changes is a little much for me. I wanna see a swatch!

It sounds like a dreamy yarn. By the way, how did you do that chart? That would be really helpful for finding a good color palette.

well i'm sure there are better ways to do it, but i used what i had, microsoft excel, i just made the grid 12 pixels by 12 pixels and copied the chart by filling each square with the color i wanted. Of course excel only gives about 30-40 colors to choose from so i couldn't get perfect matches, like that aqua color is off, but it gives me a good representation. Once i finalize my plans i'm going to make a full chart that i can follow instead of having to find my place on a different column everytime while working the body.

Ok i modified my color chart a little bit more, i took out the yellow that was in the light blue row, every single bit of scroll work is now white, with blues as backgrounds, i think it still gives it that brocade look


now my only dilemma is yarn, i had decided on the cashcotton because i love it, and its way more practical for me to have a sweater made with a cotton blend because its not that cold in texas (except for today brrr) BUT its 9 dollars a ball, 7.50 online but then i have shipping. So i think the sweater would end up costing me over 175 dollars! I dont mind working with a yarn that works up with 24-26 sts to 4 inches because i can figure out my gague and make a smaller size, but i just dont know what yarn to go with now.

here is my modified chart, the bright blue is alot brighter than the yarn will be but its the closest representation i had.

I'm planning on using cream as my pattern color, and then pretty, jet, seafoam, chintz and vivid as my background colors.

that's beautiful! i <3 it

Superstitch, thanks for sharing your chart. Your colors look great! If you don't mind, I'm going to try it as a guide for doing my own colors. With fewer colors, I may be able to get away with using Knitpicks' Palette, and the colors I want. I may post here asking for opinions of possible color choices after I have experimented a bit.

Thanks! I actually just did a post on various colors. I'd love to hear some opinions, even if it's "none of those will work." lol. Here's the link:

wow! I'm am in LOVE with the first color chart on your blog! Pinks and reds is usally the colors i favor, i only went with the blues because cashcotton offers 5 blues to choose from and only one pink and one red. I need to seriously rethink my color choices. I was thinking that it needed to be shades of one color to look cohesive but i really love the pinks and greys together.
