I have been thinking about colours that would look beautiful with a very dark green corduroy duffle coat.
Some of the options I have thought about included the beautiful Araucania Ranco Multi hand dyed wool. The colours are just gorgeous when knitted up.
This option includes a lovely araucania ranco multi yarn which would be used for the hat and mittens.
The dark green, blue and softer grayish green are lace weight shetland wool. I have photographed them with the duffle in the background.
The original colour scheme which I used in the Evergreen collection. I have been thinking of different options to give a bit of choice. It has been fun looking through all my boxes of wool.
This option shows the selection of lace weight wool that I think would look lovely for the scarf with the araucania ranco multi wool that is shown in the first two photographs. The mauve and blue tones along with the dark greens look striking with the duffle coat.
This option shows a lovely chocolate brown, dark green and blue shetland lace weight wool for the scarf and a gorgeous richly coloured Lorna's Laces shepherd sock hand dyed wool as the multi coloured option for the hat and mittens.
In this option I thought that the natural tawny, turquoise and dark green shetland lace weight wool looked gorgeous as a foil for the araucania ranco multi option for the hat and mittens.
