Gradient Magic with Myra Wood
Gradient yarns are known for their long repeats where the colors change slowly and form bands of color across the fabric as you knit. You can create stunning fabric with little effort–and probably have already–but there are ways to knit them into even more stunning color results.
Myra shares the magic!
Learn how to make the best of these ombre and self-striping yarns by breaking them apart into smaller balls. It will appear like you have many different colors of the same yarn. You will practice different techniques and stitch patterns to see how much power these colorful yarns pack in just a single ball.
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.
