Color Block Designs – 3 New Graphs

Now that I had a little time to do some work on it, here are 3 new graphs for the Color Block Designs – Flannelghan Style.

First up is one that I call Rainbow Reflections. This design uses 6 colors and follows the basic color pattern of a rainbow, minus one color. The design also includes varigated squares to ‘bleed’ from one color to the next. In the graph, when you see RO, that means to combine 1 strand of Red with 1 strand of Orange. OY will be 1 strand Orange, 1 strand Yellow. And so forth with the rest of the varigated squares.

Rainbow Reflections Graph: 6 Colors
Color R – Red
Color O – Orange
Color Y – Yellow
Color G – Green
Color B – Blue
Color P – Purple

The next design is also inspired by rainbows. This one is called Rainbow Dreams. Rainbow Dreams adds in the 7th color in the rainbow spectrum, and also adds in an 8th color to bring in the sky. The varigated squares are removed from this design and instead you will have all solid color squares. Still using 2 strands per square.

Rainbow Dreams Graph: 8 Colors
Color R – Red
Color O – Orange
Color Y – Yellow
Color G – Green
Color B – Blue
Color I – Indigo
Color V – Violet
Color S – Sky Blue

 

The last design (I think) for the day is called Mad About Plaid. In the graph I used colors that would help set the pattern off so you, the reader and crocheter, would see the general idea. The colors you select are up to you! The design calls for 2 main colors, then 2 shades of those colors. i.e. Main color 1 – maroon, secondary color 1 – light red. Main color 2 – green, secondary color 2 – dark green.

Mad About Plaid Graph: 2 Main Colors, 2 shades in same families as Main Colors
Color 1 – Main Color 1
Color 2 – Lighter Shade of Main Color 1
Color 3 – Main Color 2
Color 4 – Darker Shade of Main Color 2

I hope you enjoy these new designs, and please share what you make from them! I’d love to see how yours turn out!
