Ombre knitting patterns are a huge hit right now in the knitting community! It’s no wonder, I mean there’s something so and satisfying to the senses about colors that fade from light to dark. Beautiful shawls like the Sea Urchin Shawl (left) and the Inara Wrap (right) by Ambah O’Brien are celebrations of this trend.

I love how this gradient yarn fades from one color to another. You could knit a pattern that’s one solid stitch pattern, and change colors every few inches. Yarn Lux has some colorways that I am really excited about, here are just a few:

Named after one of my favorite songs, this colorway is bold, feminine, and sexy. Knitcircus is pretty popularly known for their gradient yarn cakes, so if you’re looking for a project to use this yarn for, you won’t be disappointed with a simple search on Ravelry.

Ok, so combine the most soft, silky, luxurious fibers in the world, and what do you get? Silk, Alpaca, and Cashmere yarn– that’s what you get!

There are so many things I would love to see knit up in this merino by What The Flock Hand Dyed on Etsy! Here are just a couple:
You can just see the softness in this yarn. This twisted superwash merino sock yarn set contains 6 skeins of 80 yards each. I honestly think I would buy this yarn if I didn’t even knit- just to hold it. I kind of want to make a really luxury stuffed animal out of it so that I can feel safe and warm every night! Anyone else? Just me? Ok, yeah I’d probably make a beautiful scarf or shawl.

I think I would choose this scarf to show off the beautiful hues in this yarn.
The dark and moody tones of this yarn juxtaposed with the feminine and intricate hand beading make this mysterious yarn shimmer. A simple shawl pattern is all you need to show the beauty of the yarn.

This sweater knitting pattern features green ombre stripes (however this particular pattern uses fingering weight yarn).
I think any striped sweater would look amazing with ombre yarn. And in DK weight it would knit up fast! I’m imagining the green ombre yarn in every striped sweater pattern I see now.
