I LOVE taking two radically different Chroma colors, pairing them up and then working stripes until both skeins run out. I especially like how Chroma looks in a Granny crochet stitch, each little 3dc cluster is a slightly different color from the last and the gradual fade between colors is wonderfully mesmerizing.
I made this cowl up as I went, I think I chained for about 56″, joined into a circle without twisting then working (3dc, ch1) across until the end and then alternating balls each row. Here I used Sandpiper and Sandstone Chroma Fingering with a 3.25mm (D) crochet hook.
I would love to try Wildflower and Fog Bank or Weather Vane and Lupine for a brighter version. This was a great, easy project that packs a whopping amount of satisfaction into such a simple pattern.
Have you tried any of the new Chroma colors yet? My Grandmother has been working on a bunch of crochet socks in Chroma and loves working with it and I can’t wait to get my hands on some more for a series of granny squares with a Chroma Natural border. So many possibilities!
