It’s Tuesday! My schedule got a bit wonky during the Learn Crochet Plaid Class launch, but I think we are back on track now. I am excited for these last few months of the year (also known as Crochet Season). I’ve been working all year in anticipation for these months and I am excited to roll out all the projects I have prepared for you! I hope you were planning on crocheting fun, pretty things :)
Today’s Tip Tuesday tip comes from Jess, the amazing and talented mind behind Make and Do Crew. She shares her awesome technique for dip-dying finished crochet (or knit) items. You can do them all one color or use her techniques to make your projects ombre, striped or rainbow. I love how this looks, and her instructions make it look very easy. I must try that ombre effect, it’s gorgeous.
Read through the article on Make and Do Crew to get all the details about how to dye your own crochet creations! I have never tried this method, but I am excited to pick up some natural colored wool yarn and give this a try (~heart eyes~).
Ready to get dyeing? (dye with color, of course!).
(And be sure to get her pattern for those gorgeous mittens. They look knit but they are actually crochet!)
