Color Trends for Yarn in 2024

Discover the hues that will define your yarn creations this year.

2024 Color Trends begin with Pantone, which then inspires textile mills, fashion houses, and manufactures of yarn, clothing and home decor. The 2024 color of the year is Peach Fuzz. From Pantone: “Peach Fuzz is a velvety gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul. A compassionate and nurturing peach shade highlighting our desire for togetherness with others and the feelings this creates, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz presents a fresh approach to a new softness. Subtly sensual, a heartfelt peach hue with a tender touch, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz communicates a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration. Inside, you’ll find a full page of Peach Fuzz, more about why we selected the color for 2024, and a complete history of the past Pantone Colors of the Year.”

There are great tools for learning how to incorporate any color into a palette for combining colors. Here are a few color palette ideas featuring the Peach Fuzz color of the year:

Color can also be very personal. Maybe you already have your signature colors that you love to wear, and love to knit and crochet with. Even still, it can be fun to incorporate other colors together for a variety of moods and specific looks. Color can also tell a story.

How to Choose the Color Palette for your Knit or Crochet Projects:

color wheel for choosing yarn colorsChoosing colors is such a personal experience but can also be overwhelming and intimidating if you are unsure of which colors go together. In the words of Picasso, “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”

A color wheel is a great tool to use when choosing colors for any project. I like this color wheel and use mine often!

Combining cool and warm toned colors can add contrast and interest to your knit and crochet patterns. White, shades of blue, green and gray for the cooler shades, and yellows, oranges, reds and purples for the warmer shade ranges. But you can also represent any color story you desire in your palette. Maybe it is choosing your gift recipients favorite colors. Let’s say you are making it for your mom and she loves pinks and purples. You could find a yarn with a great range of shade in the pink and purple family of colors. Keep in mind, the larger the palette, the more variation in your color palette. So within shades of pink and purple, you might want to look at magentas (the redder side of violet) and periwinkles (the bluer side of violet), too.

Analogous colors is another great way to choose colors for a knit or crochet project. Analogous means colors that are very similar to each other, especially when they are next to each other on a color wheel. For example: red, red-orange, orange-red and orange are analogous colors. So are violet, violet-blue, blue-violet and blue. these can make striking palettes and you can also use a pop of a natural to break it up if you want: white, tan, taupe, gray, or black.

Using Mother Nature is a wonderful way to combine colors in a palette, too. A flower garden has a variety of flower colors and leave and step colors that all work beautifully together.

You can also take a photo of the location you are representing in your project as inspiration for your palette, too. For example, here are some palette ideas for different locations in Rome, Italy:

These images are for inspiration! Loosely use these combinations as your guide since you will still have to find yarns that work for your budget, your gauge and your color palette, too.

And here are some color inspiration photos from other parts of the world, too:
