Bachelor Nick, Episode Seven: Danielle’s Ombré Sweater

I didn’t think Nick and Danielle had a ton of chemistry to begin with, but she had a tragic backstory…so there was no way she was going home for the first couple of episodes. She seemed really lovely, so I’m glad she got kicked off this week. Better now than awkward family tragedy home town date, right? I totally related when she said she “had to leave before she totally loses it.” Girl, the whole point of the show is for you to totally lose it. Props for trying to keep it classy.

In honor of Danielle’s last week, I’m featuring a cardigan that didn’t get much air time. Sharleen Joynt did spot the sweater though with her typical amazing attention to detail.

Really, this just gives me an excellent excuse to feature ombré sweaters.

I have a total yarn crush on Tanis Fiber Arts. Ever since I heard Tanis’ interview on the Woolful Podcast, I’ve been in love with her yarn and her patterns!

This cardigan pattern features a dying technique to create the ombrè effect!

Shui-mo: Designed by Michele Wang

The ombrè effect here is created by holding two strands together and shifting the colors “one strand at a time to achieve a smooth gradient.”
