10 Things We All Hate About ombre crochet blanket
My oldest daughter, Emily, has become a master of the ombre crochet blanket. As a girl, you might recall that ombre crochet is, well, ombre. But, as Emily’s mother, I must admit that I love it. Her daughter, Katelyn, also has a natural ability for ombre crochet, with many ombre blankets and pillows to her credit.
Emilys ombre blankets have a deep history in American culture. My grandmother (who lived in Connecticut) would often have ombre blankets displayed in her house, which she would then sell at neighborhood yard sales. The fabric was often a very high quality fabric, perfect for using in a blanket that would be warm and cozy, not just for sleeping but for working, working at, and working at work.
In the same way that it is so easy for us to forget our favorite pair of jeans so easy for us to forget that we used to wear those jeans.
It’s difficult to get a blanket out of ombre fabric, but if you’re anything like my grandmother then you’ll be able to pull it off. The reason that it’s so difficult is because the yarn that is used to make the blanket doesn’t go through a machine. Instead, it’s hand-finished and then painstakingly hand-bound into a fabric.
The blanket has a super-duper beautiful print of a lady with a hat and her feet encased in a footstool. It also uses super-duper beautiful hand-recycled wool that is hand-woven into a blanket. It’s a must-have item for all knitters.
I think you can also get a similar thing using the same kind of yarn, but it would be awesome if you were to somehow combine them into one blanket.
ombre crochet is a great yarn that can be used not just for blanket-yarns, but for a lot of other things as well. One of my favorite things is to use a combination of yarns to make patterns. I know I mentioned the super-duper beautiful print above but I’m sure you’ve heard of the super-duper amazing colorways of baby blankets, and they’re also super-duper amazing patterns.
If you’ve ever heard the term ombre, you’ve probably also heard that it’s a pattern of stripes. Now I know you’re probably thinking, “Hey, that sounds like a bad name for a pattern,” but theyre actually a great name for pattern, because it’s really just two stripes with no other fancy stuff. I love the variation you get with ombre crochet, especially because it can be done in so many different ways.
