Of course it is easier to buy the gradient wool from the trade.
This is what Tanja Steinbach says on her website: “There are many yarns on the market that already” bring along “the color gradient, I also like these yarns for one or the other model, but sometimes I just want to have my favorite colors or, above all, have influence on when the color changes now. ”
The new book of Tanja Steinbach “Knit Ombré” I have personally won the author. She sent it to me with a personal signature and message. I, Happy!
The book, well, I want to say, it’s more of a booklet. Published by Topp-Verlag and the scope of Lütt, but brimming with great projects and super beautiful color gradients.
As Tanja Steinbach her book on her website www.tanjasteinbach.de with some pictures, I immediately fell in love with the Loop in arrow pattern , I can tell you, the wool is already ready. But as a first project I chose the bag.
This is how the bag looks in the book:
With To knit 5 threads and balls of wool was a first for me. With Knitting needle 10 I personally find it difficult to knit (hurts my hands), but it’s moving fast.
At first, I was really unclear how to sew the floor so that it gives the bag stand and bottom. But I just sewed on template and lo and behold, it was as it should be.
The bag holds a lot and will always accompany me in my projects. Even my husband finds the bag and the gradient great.
If you like, you will find the details of the book here:

Greetings and have fun knitting wishes
