I’ve been seeing more and more gradient and ombre patterns popping up lately, and I love it! I’m quite fond of the way they can subtly move from one color into the next, so that you often can’t even notice where the changes happened! There are many ways to achieve this look, from a yarn that does it for you, to pacts of yarns made to work together as a gradient, to picking out the yarn colors on your own. I have searched around and found several examples of these fun color changes for this week’s round up!
Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.
1) Ombre Crochet Ear Warmer Tutorial ~ by Oomanoot
“Every year I make everyone winter hats. This year I made a giant load of hats for charity. But no hat for me… This year’s been exceptionally cold, and my ears are freezing off! My hair is finally long enough to wear up, but that’s not really convenient for a hat. So instead, I decided to make an ear warmer.”
2) Grayscale Ombre Slouch ~ By Cre8tion Crochet
“The Grayscale Ombre Slouch is fun and stylish. This crochet slouch hat works up quickly and uses very little yarn. Pattern comes in 3 sizes, toddler, child and adult.”
3) Juliette Shawl ~ by Jessie Rayot
“Every year I walk in the St. Patrick’s Day parade with my Girl Scout troop. This year I decided I needed a shawl. Juliette is perfect for the coming spring, as it’s open design keeps it from being too warm. The circular design keeps it from falling off, so no worries of losing my shawl somewhere on the parade route!”
4) “Bloom” A Knot & Puffs Crochet Beanie ~ by Athena Field
“Spring reminds me of flowers and hence the name “Bloom”. I used a gradient yarn to crochet 2 beanies from the one skein.”
5) Ombre Arrows Afghan ~ by Tamara Kelly
“I’m completely in love with this stitch pattern, and have had so much fun playing with it for the past month! The Neptune’s Arrow Scarf featured it in brown and cream, creating an animalistic print, but I wanted to try a different look in a squishy Aran weight yarn from Red Heart – and the Ombre Arrows Afghan is the result!”
6) Rainbow Collection: Ombre Pillow Set ~ by Hookers Don’t Bite
“The Ombre Pillow Set includes 14″ and 16″ pillows made in the round using all single crochet and the painted crochet technique from Somewhere Over the Rainbow. You basically single crochet in the round with three strands together throughout the pattern, swapping out one strand at a time to get the ombre effect”
