Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light Color Pairings - Three Colors

Welcome back! Are you ready for more? I know I am! If you missed our first post be sure to scroll down and check it out! We here at Jimmy Beans have been putting together some great color pairings for you because looking at colors on a screen can make it so hard to determine if they look good together - am I right? Well fret no longer! We are using Madelinetosh's Tosh Merino Light because it is one of our most popular yarns of all time and is really versatile as well. OK - here we go!

Three Color Combos

Yesterday we explored some great two color combinations, and you can check out that post below or see our kit on our website here. Today we will be talking about three color combos (kit link here). Putting three colors together can be a daunting task. Each color must look good with not one but two colors and must be an essential part of that pairing. A favorite saying of mine is from Antoine de Saint Exupéry - "It seems that perfection is attained, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away." If you think you would be doing a disservice to your project by excluding the third color you know you have chosen great colors. We hope we have done the same here. What patterns might you use these wonderful colors in? Well there are myriads to chose from but we think Any of these would be stellar: Ripple Effect, Herrington, Deep Woods Toque from Knitscene Winter 2015 and Lilli Pilli,

Top Left: Composition Book Grey, Silver Fox and Sugar Plum -  We had to do at least one gradient combo - right? Imagine how wonderful this combowould look in the Changing Light pattern?!? Composition Book Grey consistently has a purple bent and combined with Silver fox and Sugar Plum you get a magically elegant purple pairing.

Top Center: Edison Bulb, Holi Festival and Oceana - This is the most wild pairing in the bunch! You can find flecks of Edison Bulb in Holi Festival and the whole thing is reigned in a little by the bright Oceana blue. It's a raucous celebration of color, but not an assault on the eyes!

Top Right: Mineral, Celadon, Brick Dust - I am calling this the ultimate Southwest color pairing. Mineral is the bright turquoise color. Celadon is our Sagebrush green, and Brick Dust is the perfect orange/brown/grey mix representing the land.

Middle Left Whiskey Barrel, Rey, Dubrovnik - This is a very refined pallette. The deep blue, Dubrovnik, is one of our favorite new colors. The deep brown and blue look classic together, and the speckle makes it very modern. This is a great combo for men or for any occasion that requires more sensible, formal colors.

Middle right: some colors selections on a table in our warehouse.

Bottom Left: Well Water, Murakami, Neon Red - This is the combo that most surprised me! I NEVER would have thought to put these colors together, and they look stunning! You can find flecks of the red and the blue in Murakami, but it also adds flecks of yellow and black as well. It is a modern Piet Mondrian pallette.

Bottom Center: Cactus Flower, Outlander, Jade - This combo is for color lovers! The slightly variegated Cactus Flower looks great next to the heavily speckled Outlander color, and the tonal green Jade balances out all the lively pink while still matching it ounce for ounce in terms of color saturation.

Bottom Right: Tart, Birch Grey, Thunderstorm - This is a wintery version of a red, white and blue combo. Tart is one of our favorite reds in the whole warehouse. Tart and Anzula's One Red Shoe have got to be our two favorite reds. Paired with the lightly speckled birch grey and deep blue/black, this red looks even more elegant. If I needed a holiday party shawl, this is the color set I would use!

I hope we have tempted and inspired you! Please keep calling us for color help! Happy Holidays!
