Crochet in Bright Color: December 26

Winter is a good time to think of crocheting something in bright colors, especially using yarns in clear primary colors that we see reflected so often in children’s toys. We’ve picked out a few finished works, all done by our readers, that may give you some ideas on how to be bold with color. The captions are in their own words.

from Patricia Hall: “I made this Lego afghan for my baby boy and it won first place at the Arizona State Fair!”

We’d like to say “Congratulations” to Patricia. It’s easy to see why it won 1st place! This would be a fun afghan to make, too! Her blocks are strong and even and she’s used colors that really appeal.

from: Lena Kozak: “Made hat for girl”

We love Lena’s hat. It is spirit-lifting thanks to bright and clear yarns. That yellow button just sets it off, too!

from: Carolyn Mulneix Welch: “One of 14 owl scarves I made for people for Christmas. Right at 5 ft long with 18 owls.”

A person can’t help but be wise and cheerful with all these owls. Although there is a lot of black, the reds, oranges and other colors make it “pop”.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their crochet with our community at Starting Chain… And now to to do something bright! Yarn Over!
