Mother in Law
So my mother in law wants a pair of mitts and a hat for x-mas. She says she has a cranberry colored jacket and would like them to go with that. I have no skill with color coordination. Can anyone help?

My first thought is a hunter green or a dark chocolate brown or a navy.

I would knit them in a cranberry color. Or a natural/white with Cranberry accents.

Unless you have seen her coat, the cranberry will be hard to match. I suggest gray. If you want to add other colors, then add the reds in several different shades to blend in with the coat.

I thought Dark chocolate if she likes dark or Natural or Off White is she likes Light colors.

You could let her pick. I'd select something in the brown family- light or dark. Brown's very neutral and will go with any future coat she may buy or with any other coats she may have.

I think everyone is right. Maybe a nice silvery gray with the cranberry in it. I would love to let her pick but she's in Toronto and I'm in Halifax. Not very convenient So i have a hat pattern i like : http://www.crafterati.com/2006/09/08...s-hat-pattern/
this is it. So maybe main color gray and the bands in a multicolor maybe that has cranberry in it?

My first choice would be chocolate then maybe cream and I also think that pink would look kind of nice.
