Tutorial: Spinning Gradient Yarns... Part 16 - Conclusion & eBook!





Today, in our spinning gradient yarns series we are going to conclude our journey here on the blog and look at my NEW EBOOK, which will explore all of this and more!

So far we have looked at;
  • How to spin true and progressive gradients.
  • How to create your own faux gradient.
  • Patterns that would be great for gradient work, including two I have created (see below) and how to create yarns for these patterns.
  • Finally what else we can do with gradients, from stripes to marls.
Examples from Parts 1-11.
Don't forget our patterns...


Fisherman's Net Pattern


Cloisters Pattern

I think we have covered good ground and now you should have a better idea of how to approach gradient fibres and sets when you see them for sale.

I will keep the Ravelry thread live if you want to play along... it would be great to see what you come up with.

Also just to mention that I have plenty of gradients and colour sets in stock for you to buy at www.sarastexturecrafts.com

Thank you so much for reading along with me... 

Please purchase my new Spinning Gradients eBook which will explore all of this and a bit more!



Please share with your friends... Sara x
