With its larger scale, Section 2 was a nice contrast to Section 1. The continued use of Color A provided a nice transition to this contrasting pattern. Successful pattern mixing is achieved by combining a limited number of patterns and colors into a cohesive fabric. Colormatic follows these principles by continuing Section 3 in the Zigzag pattern but in a different color combination. You will be amazed at the gorgeous transition that is achieved with a simple swap of colors.
Continue Section 3 with the same chart used in Part Two except substitute Color C for the Main Color (MC) and Color D for the Contrasting Color (CC). The only difference is that Section 3 is ended with Round 11 to set the stage for Section 4. For your convenience I have posted the chart again and also updated the row instructions to reflect the new colors.
Can’t wait to finish Colormatic with you next week!
