If you want a color contrast that’s a little less bold, though, you can go for colors like the ones in the Oudtshoorn Brioche Cowl above. Similar colors working together — a purple and dark blue, for example — can create a beautiful palette that’s just as interesting as contrasting colors.
VARIEGATED AND HAND-DYED YARN
When you’re thinking about color, don’t forget about hand-dyed and variegated yarns. Check out the Abutilon Brioche Stitch Cowl pictured above and you’ll see how well a variegated yarn pairs with a solid yarn in two-color brioche.
