Most of my patterns are designed so that you can change the colors up to suit your style and decor. But if you are feeling a little stumped or color-challenged, here are some places that I go for a little color-play and inspiration.

Felted Button on Pinterest -- I consistently pin color inspiration here, especially on my "Colorful World" board.

  1. I LOVE several of the baby blankets made with Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, color Candied!! How many skeins would you estimate I would need to make a "throw" or adult size couch "blanket".
    I am "captiria@bresnan.net" (email).

    1. This is a great question! Depending on the blanket and stitch pattern, of course, I have a link that provides a general "rule of thumb" based on yarn weight and blanket size. Hopefully it helps a bit. http://www.lionbrand.com/faq/96.html

    1. Good question, Erin! I do not currently do custom crochet work as I spend my time designing. But if you are interested in finding someone, I know that there are many shops on Etsy that do commissioned work. A search there might prove fruitful and they could make the blanket for your daughter using my pattern!

    1. You really can choose any colors that suit you. Some people choose the typical rainbow with red representing hotter temps, but that is not required. Feel free to join my Felted Button Temperature CAL group on Facebook where others share their ideas.
