One of the most common question I get when I release a new Mood board is ‘how do you use them?’ So here’s my latest make and how I used my mood boards.
I browsed my mood boards collection and decided on the this peachy color recipe.
But as you know some colors on screen look different than colors in real daylight and I wanted to make sure I was happy with the my choice so out came the peg collection. They blended perfectly starting with the neutral White and gradually changing in tint to Vintage Peach, the Silver and Grey add a nice touch of contrast
I wanted something modern, simple, no fuss or frills. The Classic Granny! With a classic granny I didn’t have to worry about depth and definition I could simple use the mood board as it was, layering the colors on top of one another.
I honestly didn’t know how much yarn it would take, I figured I would order 2 of each and just keep going until it got to a good size.
The Color Repeat
White, Soft Peach, Apricot, Vintage Peach, White, Silver, Grey and repeat!
I used a 4.5mm hook and did a total of about 8 repeats
Measuremnts: 44″ x 44″
I ended up using
2 x white
2 x grey (1 x Blanket and 1 x Border)
2 x vintage peach (1 x Blanket and 1 x Pom Poms)
1 x silver
1 x apricot
1 x soft peach
The border was simple, using grey 2 rounds of dc’s, one round of sc and one round of crab st in the Vintage peach.
I wanted to give the blanket an extra special touch so I made detachable large pom poms using my clover pom pom maker and finished them off with some ribbon. I used the ribbon to tie the pom poms to each corner.
I’m so please with the outcome and already planning my next Mood Board make 🙂
You can essentially use any of my mood boards for this type of project, the classic granny is quick, simple and very effective.
