OTHER IDEAS FOR CHANGING COLORS TO SUIT YOUR STYLE OR TASTE FROM TAHKI YARNS BOOK SMART Tweed Collection, 3rd Edition
DUBLINERS COAT (Pattern #4) in DONEGAL TWEED
The original version on the left shows shades of green offset by a rich cream (color #s 839, 859, 894 and 848). For a different look, like the blue swatch on the right, you can select a lightcolored neutral (we chose a light grey #884) and 3 shades of blue (#840, 862 and 844) to give your coat an entirely different look.

EMMA SCARF (Pattern #11) in TWEEDY ALPACA


The original design on the left has 2 neutral shades (#001 & 011) and a denim blue (#014) for contrast. The example on the right shows a look with less contrast, in colors #005, 006 & 010. High contrast or low its up to you!
