Gradient or ombre yarns abound in the market, either as long-repeat stripes or as gradient sets from hand-dyers. Successful knitting with either type requires planning and forethought. Join Laura in exploring design possibilities from simple rectangle scarves and shawls to more complex shapes whose pieces must match. Great for modular, mosaic, and straight knitting, as well as some interesting side roads. Lots of hands-on work.
