Crochet Ombré Jumper

Going on from my Crochet Clothing post it seems I’ve accidently joined in with another crochet trend in making this jumper for my sister’s birthday – Crochet Ombré.

Crochet Ombre - yellow

She’s a big fan of the colour yellow. She quite likes the muted tones but she REALLY likes the bright, bold, hit you in the face kinda yellows! I swear my nephew should be wearing sunglasses every time he goes into his bedroom!

After she expressed a liking to my green jumper it seemed logical to make a yellow one for her for her birthday. I couldn’t bring myself to make the whole jumper in the brightest yellow that I knew she’d love though. I started out with that intention but I’m a bit more colour resevered and some kind of psychological barrier prevented me from doing it.

So, I went for an Ombré approach instead – and this gave me the perfect excuse to set up a new pinterest board!

I made this jumper using the same pattern as my green jumper but as I’m still experimenting with the pattern I made it longer, with a bigger hook and a looser tension. There’s that impatient crocheter coming out again!

The finished result came out lovely and snuggly – perfect for chilling out in leggings and big fluffy socks.

And, I think the ombré pattern works really well. I used a bright yellow, a more muted tone and then a cream. I’m really pleased with the finished result and this won’t be the last ombré item I make – I like this trend! It might help me to make bolder colour choices.

      Thanks Kate – am starting to wish I’d kept it and sent my sister a gift card instead! 😂 I’m not usually keen on yellow but the Ombre effect has definitely changed my mind.

    This is beautiful,!! I’m in process of crocheting for my 9 grandkids, mostly hats, scarves and purses for my 5 girls. Everyone always says I put myself last. But I’ve been wanting to try crocheting clothing and your blouse may just be what puts grannybee in 1st place! : -) I love the yellows and have the colors to make. But my fave color is blue, all shades and I cant wait to get started! I’ll post when it’s done and definitely give you credit for your friendly and generous spirit. Ty so much for sharing.

    This is lovely!!! I crochet a lot for my 9 granz. Eveyone says I always do for granz and not myself. But I think this is just the motivation to make something for Grandma Bee! I’ve been wanting to try crocheting clothing n have did one baby dress. I love your patterns and they’re easy to adopt for my size! 🙂 Will definitely post when its done and with a link back to you. Ty for your friendly and generous spirit.
