Colourful Crochet


35 designs to bring the benefits of colour into your life by Emma Leith (Author)

Book Description

Imagine you are in the wool shop or searching for yarn online  do you instinctively go for the reds and pinks, naturally veer towards soft blues and greens, or head to the dark side of greys and blacks? The relationship between colours and our state of mind is well established, but we don't often consciously notice how much different colours affect us or understand why we favour some over others.

Emma Leith is known for her colourful crochet, and has designed 35 projects that will bring you the psychological benefits of working with different shades, along with the enjoyment of creating beautiful items for the home and to wear.

There is a chapter for each season, to reflect the colours of nature in spring, summer, autumn and winter, and then a chapter of 'four seasons' designs, showing you how to mix shades from different times of the year. With notes on the colour therapy benefits of different patterns, and suggestions for switching shades to suit your own preferences, you will soon be crocheting in full colour.

About the Author

About Emma Leith

Emma Leith has used her Buddhist practice and learned the benefits of mindful crochet from a personal perspective, while undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Her website, Emma Leith Atelier (www.emmaleith.co.uk), showcases her love of colour and texture, and her aim is to spread hope and happiness in all that she does. Whether she is yarn-bombing a town centre or teaching children, her work is always life-affirming and full of fun. Emma lives near Bath, UK with her daughter and partner, their two dachshunds, and Womble the cat.


Inside Crochet

Here at Inside Crochet we love Emma Leith's cheery and colourful designs, and we know you do too, so we were really happy to see this new pattern collection. Emma says that "This book is a window into my colourful world" - and it's a window we're very glad to peek through!

Creating colour palettes for each of the seasons, as well as a full rainbow "Four Seasons" section, Emma has provided 36 bright and beautiful homeware projects that will get you reaching for your hook. 

Standout designs include the Floral Tiles cushion, with delicate flowers outlined in a pure white, Colourplay Face Scrubbies, to make washtime a pleasure, and the super chunky Bobble Cushion, which offers two colour schemes to demonstrate different effects. Emma also suggests using the face scrubbies as a way of practising the colour wheel, with each scrubbie using four colours that sit together on the wheel, in any order, to create a harmonious result. We're certainly tempted to make up a whole rainbow to brighten up our bathroom. 

This is a beautiful collection sure to give year-round inspiration to those who love to fill their homes with colour.
