We are now presenting 5 packs each comprising of 6 balls of 100% cotton yarn in different tones of one colour. Of course, we are also sharing two very simple free patterns to make your openwork shawl in gradient colours easy. Whether your strength is in crochet or you prefer knitting, download the PDF with both sets of instructions. These are two very easy projects and each colour change of Katia Ombré Cotton gets you hooked. You’ll see!
Openwork shawl in gradient colours
First, choose the chromatic scale for your openwork shawl from the gradient colours. Amongst the 5 packs of Katia Ombré Cotton you’ll find blues-denims, light and dark greens, yellows-mustards, pinks-reds-oranges and cream-greys-black. Then, follow the gradient order starting to knit or crochet with the lightest tone. Of course, you can also play with the 6 balls in the pack and combine the colours as you want. Remember: each ball is used in its entirety so the following colour change is generated. Lastly, we recommend that you make the colour changes at one of the sides of your work to conceal the join.
