Red, yellow and blue are the three primary colours. All other colours can be made by mixing combinations of these three colours. Warm colours seem to stand out while cool colours seem to recede.

With this in mind it can sometimes be effective to pick warm colours for parts of a pattern that you would like to stand out and cool colours as background colours. Value refers to contrast; how light or dark a colour is. Value is very important to consider in colourwork knitting, particularly stranded knitting. For a stranded colourwork pattern to be intelligible there needs to be a high contrast between the two colours used together.
It can be surprisingly hard to determine value by looking at two colours together. Red and green, for example, can be very close in value despite looking distinct as two different colours. It can be helpful to take a black and white photograph of your yarn choices or use software to make a colour photograph appear greyscale to determine the colour values and whether there is enough contrast for the affect that you are aiming for.
Red, for example, can be light or dark. Each different hue has a value range. The intensity of the colour can be affected by adding white, grey or black. Mixing a hue with white makes the colour lighter and mixing with black makes it darker.
Picking lots of saturated colours from all around the colour wheel will result in a project that is bright and bold, which might be considered by some as loud or garish. Using similar hues but with varied saturation is also very effective. The Thorn Stitch Shawl pattern in this book uses a dark pink-purple with a very light purple-pink. Colour inspiration can be found everywhere and in many different ways.
Colour wheels can be helpful and colour palette suggestions can be found in design books, magazines and online.
Sometimes you can be struck by a colour combination that you happen to notice — this could be anything from a painting you love or a view from your window to wallpaper patterns, book covers and even food. Save images that you find online, grab a camera if needed, jot down notes, record ideas and keep it all somewhere that you can refer back to. Once you have chosen the colours that you would like to use, you can search for yarns.

I hope you enjoy learning new techniques and playing with colour! Ella Choosing Colours Colour can be very personal as we all have our own perceptions and tastes.
We may already have favourite colours and palettes that we are drawn to. However, choosing colours to combine for a colourwork project can offer its own challenges! Attributes of Colour Colour theory usually refers to three main attributes — Hue, Value and Saturation. Hue This colour wheel shows the primary, secondary and tertiary colours.
Value Value refers to contrast; how light or dark a colour is. Tint — mixes a colour with white. Tone — mixes a colour with grey.
