Hearts & Diamonds

  • Beth Whiteside Design Hearts and Diamonds

Hearts & Diamonds surrounds your head with color, keeping it warm even on a winter beach day (aka July in San Francisco). Background or pattern, one remains the same while you change colors every few rounds for the other. Make it light or dark, and the rest of the colors will POP!

Note: This pattern uses charts for specifying when to change colors.
