nome color ideas

Nov 17, 2016 :: by Leila Raabe

Today brings us the release of our final Fall 2016 collection from the Quince design team, Weekend: Five cozy knits by designers Bristol Ivy, Pam Allen, and Melissa LaBarre, worked in a variety of Quince yarns, from fingering-weight Finch, to worsted-weight Lark, on up to Ibis and Puffin (see the full collection here!).

Among these new lovelies, Melissa LaBarre's Nome, shown above: A garter-stitch hooded cardigan worked from the neck down, with raglan shaping and simple toggle closures, knitted in two colors of Puffin—a main color and contrasting trim. This sweater is a perfect example of sweet simplicity and easy wearability.

One of the frequent questions we get is about color. How to choose? Which ones go well together? We love this question.

Melissa's original combo of Kittywake and Lichen mixes a heathered gray with a soft, subtle green.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Our staff members had fun picking out some alternate Puffin colorways for this sweater project—we hope you like them as much as we do!

Staff Color Picks

Adi chose our new wool color Canvas as the main color, with a pop of Fox for the trim:

Dawn went with heathery Caspian and Slate trim—brown and blue are tried and true perfection:

 Jerusha loves the brown of Bark paired with a bright Poppy contrast:

Victoria's choice of cool Slate and gray Kumlien's Gull is a winning combination:

Karin picked our hazy Smoke with a Sedum contrast—two colors that complement each other so well:

I love the Fall-happy combination of new shade fizzy brown Root and warm Gingerbread:

And Camel and Audouin were Whitney's choices, going with a soft, muted tonal warmth:

Which pairing is your favorite? Which Puffin colors would you choose to combine together for a cushy, snuggly sweater like Nome? We'd love to hear from you in the comments!

We hope you enjoy our newest collection of patterns, Weekend—see them all right here.
