Good pattern for learning color work??
I have NO idea how to do any sort of color work, but would like to learn. Any good scarf/hat/non sweater patterns for doing so?

I started with swatches. I just picked two colors and made a swatch doing whatever I felt like. No pressure.

I learned using this video and made the little purse.

You will need to use IE to view it.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Every kind of color work in easy-to-understand detail; a great section on color theory; lots of patterns, including some for the easiest colorwork of all: stripes.
