For Day 3 of Bavarian Crochet Week, I wanted to provide one more outstanding example before we get down to the basics of how to do the stitch. This inspirational afghan is fantastic. I love the color scheme. This is a good example of how an analogous color scheme can still be dramatic. In my original article on color schemes, I suggested that you keep the saturation of the colors the same, that is, mix lights with lights, and darks with darks.
This afghan shows how to break that rule and still achieve a harmonious result. The secret is including a medium tone color that forms a bridge between the light color and the dark color. In this case, the fuschia helps harmonize the light pastel pink with the deep amethyst purple.
I also love how the shapes are varied to create visual interest.
