Gradient Magic with Myra Wood
Yarns that graduate from one color into the next may be called many things—long color repeats, self striping, ombres—but they can all be used in endless creative ways. Learn how to separate a ball of yarn to make it appear to be several balls of the same yarn in different colors. Find out how to make the most of those balls and how different techniques highlight their usage. We’ll play with stitch patterns that create wonderful effects by using parts of the balls in different ways.
2 balls of #4 (worsted-weight) (wool or wool blends preferred) long color repeat such as Noro Kureyon or Silk Garden, Bernat Mosaic, Wisdom Poem, Universal Classic Shades or any other worsted weight long repeat, 1 dark ball and 1 light ball; 4.5mm/US 7 needles, yarn needle.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
