Ombre is a great way to show off your favorite color. Sometime ombre crochet takes advantage of a long color change yarn, and sometimes various yarns in tints and shades of the same color are used to create an ombre. Here are 7 free crochet patterns that utilize ombres.
Fun fact – ombres show off tints and shades. A tint of a color is when the color is mixed with white, and a shade is when the color is mixed with black. So basically, an ombre will go from a light tint to the actual color to a dark shade.
Here are the names and links of each pattern.
1) Dreamcatcher Mandala Circular Vest by The Lavender Chair
This flowing vest would work equally well with a long color change ombre yarn or with individually colored yarn used in order to make an ombre.
