  • Hold two strands of yarn together throughout. 1 strand of color A and 1 strand of color B. 
  • Start with the darkest shade of color A, and the lightest shade of color B. 
  • When changing to new balls of yarn start off where you left off to continue the ombre look.
  • If you want to change the size of the blanket, chain an even number and work an odd number of stitches that works for the size and gauge you want.
