6 Patterns for Gradient Yarn - Round Up

In today's round-up, I've collected some pattern ideas for gradient yarns.

What's gradient yarn? They are skeins or cakes that gradually fade from one color to the next, either tonally or into other hues, saving you from weaving in ends! Some brand names you might recognise are Scheepjes 'Whirl', Garnmanufaktur 'Lola', Red Heart 'It;s a Wrap', Konkoki Mokti and Hobbii 'Twirl'. Some colours in the Mandala range are also gradients (check out my review post here) One that I haven't tried myself, but looks really pretty is the Lana Grossa "Twisted Summer Shades' 

6 Patterns that I've picked that suit gradient yarn

Bonus - Coming Soon: Next month I have a new pattern out! I'm going to leave you with a sneak peek - but if you want to be first to know - then please join my newsletter list by clicking the 'Newsletter' button at the top right of the blog.

This one has been made by one of my testers - Thanks so much Jenny! She has helped me keep you guessing, but still managed to show off the gradient in her styling. 

Once again, thank you for reading

and Happy Crocheting,

Crochet Patterns for Sellers - Pattern Round Up

Two blog posts ago, I talked about how you can sell anything you make from one of my patterns, I'm not really a unique designer in this respect - many designers love it when you do too!
Which leads me to a new blog series - Crochet Patterns for Sellers - Part 2.

Today I've collected a selection of patterns that are great craft show sellers! Even though craft shows may currently be postponed - now is a good time to get your stock levels ready for when craft shows start up again. These patterns are fast to make, and make great gifts,

The wildflower necklace can be found free on this blog post.

Another beautiful necklace option is the Triple Strand Necklace

Spa sets also do very well - and I have two ideas for you.

Helen from Sunflower Cottage crochet has this great set

Mari - one of the Yarnish Design Team has the Getaway Spa Set.

I have a couple of washcloth patterns on this blog too! 

Something you could add to a spa set - a Chapstick holder!

Like this one from Jen Hayes Creations

Don't forget your coffee lovers with classic market makes like:

I hope this list has you inspired! My next list will continue the theme of market makes, but with a Christmas theme - as it's always a good time to get Christmas stock organised.
