Geometric Lace: Monochrome

My first monochrome piece! These blues and aquas paired with the white lace look like a lovely seascape. I have since used this color palette three more times and loved it more each time! Making a monochrome piece starts with gathering every shade in your yarn stash plus white, grey, or some other neutral for the edging. Once you have your dark to light range, you can get started. I like to begin with my color extremes – in opposing corners, I put the darkest and lightest shades – ending with white. Then I start layering in my other shades from there. My joining method (expressed in detail in my Geometric Lace pattern!) allows you to jump around the blanket, adding in shades as you see fit to best shade the piece. Dramatic and classic Black to White fade – Absolutely an indulgence creating this one. Whichever color you choose, these monochrome beauties are so opulent and always a hit! I suggest it for a calming home décor piece. It’s a great stash buster, too!
