Diva Dan’s 70 Red Heart Super Saver Color Combos


Mexican Festival Color Combo

Diva Dan Has 70 Color Combos figured out for Red Heart Super Saver

Don’t you hate when someone has a gift of putting colors or items together to make thee perfect combo. It’s like an art of matching items or colors together to give an item a kick.

I will admit, I don’t have that gift of matching colours together. The art of being able to start with a base color and naturally look for accent colors to give the base color that extra special touch. Daniel has this ability but I don’t think it’s a natural gift he has. Daniel will argue with people that his ability to play music professionally is a talent… he says “It’s hard work, practice and determination!” I will share some secrets with you.

Secrets About Daniel

During Daniel’s university years of studying music. He worked at garden centres and flower shops to pay for his education. The ability to put things together for color combinations, texture and presentation was honed from working in this environment. He realized very quickly that the art of making a beautiful bouquet of flowers, arranging flowers in a garden and finding accenting and interesting flowers and accessories to highlight the arrangement was exciting. It’s like going to the grocery store for a bouquet of flowers that are in a bucket of water, they are nice but just add a few more things and you can turn a $10 bouquet into a $50 bouquet by adding a few more things to make it extra special. 

Daniel quickly realized that he had an interest in flowers and gardening. Along with this came the idea of architecture design and love for food. Again, focused on the presentation.

When I met Daniel, 5 years ago, the closets were full of Home & Garden Magazines. For his quiet times, you would see him flip through magazines getting ideas and learning more about color combos and get further inspiration. He has the ability to go into the backyard and design a gorgeous bouquet or outdoor pot display.

Daniel got an iPad about 3 years ago. He still gets magazines but now are all in digital format. He reads these magazines thoroughly. Since Pinterest has come out. Daniel spends hours, sometimes every day, searching through Pinterest for landscaping, flowers and color ideas.

Daniel would argue that his gift for colors and design isn’t a natural gift. It’s a skill learned over years of experience in an area of life that interests him. He remembers combinations and ideas that work together. Having this knowledge allows him to easily, painlessly and quickly choose colors! In fact, I can stand in front an Yarn Aisle for up to 1/2 hour and Daniel will come along and have the colors in my hand in less than a minute. Trust me… that aggravates me to no end.

The Red Heart Super Saver Color Combos

Daniel challenged himself to review the many colours of Red Heart Super Saver, American’s Leading Yarn Brand. He wanted to help our crocheters with selecting combos.

  1. There are well over 100 colors in the Red Heart Super Saver Collection.
  2. Daniel put 5 colours together for each combination. This will allow crocheters to be able to pick between 2 to 5 colours together.
  3. Daniel focused on flowers, architecture, everyday life, holidays and themes.

You need to keep in mind that Walmart, Joannes, Michaels, AC Moore and Hobby Lobby only carries a small sample of the entire color line that is available. You can find the entire collection on RedHeart.com for all yarns by Red Heart. Most yarns by Red Heart usually has 8 to 50 color options. Due to limited shelf space, most stores choose what they believe to be the most popular colors to carry in the store. You may realize that you may love colors that aren’t the popular colors by the buyers of these retailers. Online shopping has put the power back into the consumer’s hands of being able to allow your creativity to flourish and get the colors you need.

You may see colors in Diva Dan’s collections that you have never seen before that exist. This may awaken your creative spirit!

    What took so long??? I am impressed. And now on to the issues when ordering yarn untouched for the way it feels and how many skeins for a project in simplified terms if no pattern in hand.

    Love all the color combos. Great work Dan. I did see a mistake though. Mediterranean lists Coral twice, but I believe one should be Turqua.

  16. I tip my grapic design hat to Dan! Wow, the color combos are fantastic! Blending and combining colors is so important in my career and Dan has a great talent for it.
    I can’t wait to put these to work! After the hoildays I am going to put a few of these combos to wor on my 2014 projects!
    I am so happy I found the Crowd! The information, creativeness, and inspiration is like a warm blanket with lots of giggles! I love snuggling in it!
