I feel like I’m seeing gradients everywhere just now, in new yarns, designs and in knitters yarn choices. I love them, and they’re a great way to introduce different colours into a project that might be a little too patterned to work with a variegated yarn but where you want something more subtle than striping. Its even possible to make your own, this tutorial from Laura Nelkin is something I’m looking forward to trying! So for today, here a few of my favourite Ysolda projects, using gradients.
Aaaaah! Here is Peridragon’s little one, delightfully modelling a wee Liesl, which I promise you, may be one of the fastest baby sweaters to knit of all time. She also knit a matching adult version that you can admire here!
We love to see your knits, both newly finished and out in the wild, so feel free to use the #ysolda on twitter and instagram so we can admire your work! And the Amazing FOs Pinterest board is a great place to look if you’re searching for even more inspiration.
Congratulations to our Glenmore KAL prize winners! If you're still working on your Glenmore this blog series will stay up, so you can refer back to the tutorial for any section as you knit at your own pace. For inspiration and motivation check out all the lovely Glenmore projects here.
