A method for obtaining invariants associated with multi-coloured links as the expectation values of Wilson link operators with different representations on the component knots in a three-dimensional SU(2) Chern-Simons gauge theory is developed. Some explicit calculations of these link invariants have been presented. This generalises the earlier work where the same representation of SU(2) was placed on all the component knots of a link.
