MAD monochrome

June 22, 2017

back to black. and white. and grey. and all the shades in between!

Don’t let the name put you off! If bright bold and crazy colours aren’t your jam, you will probably still love some of the projects in Mad Colour!

For many of the designs, we’ve worked a more sedate or monochrome version which shows just how versatile these designs are. Even if you’re not into colour, the texture patterns and graphic designs, worked in a monochrome palette, might be just the right next pattern for you!

Calming and crisp, the waves of the Bounce Blanket are beautiful in greys.

 

The Chromatic sweater is perfectly classic in black and white stripes!

Undertone is crisply minimal in grey and black.

And the Bumble sweater can be subtle rather than crazy when worked in neutrals.

Try an ombre! We used a white MC throughout the Awash scarf, with an ombre of CCs from black to lightest grey. This created a subtly beautiful fabric.

Do you struggle with colour? Perhaps it just doesn’t fit into your wardrobe? Try working in neutrals and see if your knits get a little more play.

I love going to Ravelry for pattern inspiration! Using the advanced pattern browser, you can search for projects using specific colour combination. Check out the exquisite results of my search for projects in black & white!

On the other hand, if you love ALL the colours, then use them all and get a little crazy!

Hunter, Emily and Jordan in almost ALL of the Mad Colour knits! And yes, it was the hottest summertime when we took this photo!
