The patterns are full of colours and textures that work together to amazing effect, like lavender and brick-red, used here in a Spanish-style shawl where lavender flowers pop out almost three-dimensionally from a red background; or a textured scarf in many variegated yarns which, contrary to popular wisdom, make a fancy-stitch pattern stand out. The author explains how she gets her own colour ideas from her travels and surroundings - an inspiration to all crocheters.-AllAboutYou.com If you aren't very brave with colour then this is a great book to boost your confidence and get you working with more vibrant shades.
