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. :thumbsup:

You will need to use IE to view 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.

My goodness, what a fantastic and easy to follow video. Thanks so much for the site.
