Autumn Knitting Patterns - Colors that Contrast and Clash

Autumn knitting patterns - colors that contrast and crush

This Autumn's biggest fashion trends are full of bold and contrasting colors, and particularly those that pack a punch. Acid greens, deep, intense mauves and shocking pinks, are some of the colors that are making headway on the fashion catwalks. So, when choosing something to create and wear, forget the same old boring and muted tones of grey and black and white. Why not opt for vivid colors; colors that work in opposition to each other. So whilst colors are usually chosen on a more complementary basis, Autumn's fashion trends say 'the bigger the clash, the better!'

Soft Rainbow is no stranger to bold and contrasting colors, as we have a rather special selection of jumper and shawl patterns that offer those very elements! From a gorgeous variety of reds to acid green, to pure white; I have a varied yet amazing mix of color combinations for you to pick from!

Not only will these patterns be fun to make, but you can create amazing and unique items that are not only warm and comfortable for you to wear at parties but are perfect to wear for casual days at home too. And so with that, I have put together some patterns for you to take a look at and have a go at making! I hope you enjoy creating them and wearing them as well. Here are just some of the beautiful Autumnal patterns that I have to offer.

For a simple look, these pieces would look best with a more minimalistic outfit, so as not to offset the bold and bright colors from the jumper and shawl that you make. For the super brave and daring, you may want to go for a full, color clashing outfit, which would definitely speak volumes!
