The best way to keep from getting bored with your creative routine is to add something fresh and unexpected to the mix. Fashion designers, authors, and even artists have been doing this for centuries; repurposing old subjects and styles to transform them into something exciting and new. That’s why bellbottom jeans come in and out of style, modern romantic novels echo a plot similar to the classic Romeo and Juliet, and why Vincent van Gogh’s paintings of everyday scenery are unique and interesting. One small change can turn your craft pattern from bland to innovative. When it comes to yarn crafts, the trendiest twist to add to your projects is simple and stunning: ombre! This breathtaking technique is a gradual blending of colors from one hue to the next. Although you can do this yourself with careful color changes, the result is more fluid when using special ombre yarn. Check out the vast collection of ombre yarn at CutRateCrafts.com and see what all of the fuss is about!
I’ve seen ombre pretty much everywhere lately. From nail polish to hair coloring to fabrics, people just can’t seem to get enough of this technique. It’s not difficult to understand why: ombre adds depth to any project, which gives it intrigue without a lot of extra effort! I especially love the ombre effect when it’s added to crochet and knitting patterns. Since I always have a hard time choosing which color skeins I want to use, ombre allows me to indulge my love of color while keeping my projects from looking like a childish color explosion. It’s easy to use… you just have to knit or crochet as you normally would. The multi-colored yarn will gradually shift its colors, thus creating an effortlessly gorgeous fabric.
