I love color. I may be a little obsessed with it, actually. I could spend hours looking at beautiful photos with amazing colors. As a crocheter, I think it’s vital to “keep up with the times” as some may say, and one way to do this with your crocheting/knitting is to look at color trends for the year. Find inspiration in clothing stores, magazines, websites…anything really. Find something that speaks to you, then figure out how to emulate it in your yarn projects. This will help you keep your projects fresh and looking as if you bought your latest scarf from the store. Now THAT’S a good feeling.
So the colors we’ll be looking at today have been popular for a little while now. But, with spring around the corner, mint and coral are the perfect colors to crochet and knit with. Here are some examples of full color palettes to use for your next project (thank you Design Seeds):
See, I told you I love pretty pictures and colors.
Now, onto the patterns! I’ve gathered mint and coral colored crochet and knitting patterns just for you. There are so many ways to crochet and knit with this color scheme and it just makes me happy inside.
Mint Crochet and Knitting Patterns
This minty color is a beautiful addition to the pastel blues and pinks. It also seems a little more sophisticated and grown-up. It’s definitely not just for baby blankets these days. I can picture this color being used for so much more. Ripple afghans, more granny squares, and crochet throws are just waiting to be made with this color. These patterns are mostly crochet with a couple knit patterns in here as well.

- Lollipop Baby Blanket
- Minty Flower Square

Coral Knitting and Crochet Patterns
I cannot get over how gorgeous this color is. Coral translates very well into crochet and knit items. No matter what shade of this color you use, the result will be chic and brilliant. Coral is a beachy color and it will help bring some sunshine into your crocheting and knitting.
