The Crochet Sunny Spread Throw is neat with lightly textured spoked grannies. I had fun with it using Super Saver Ombre.
Originally designed as a solid colour with Red Heart Super Saver, Jade. I was curious about using Red Heart Super Saver Ombre, Baja Blue.
Update: The tutorial shows the pattern takes 9 balls. It’s been updated to 7 balls for Red Heart Super Saver. The PDF on Yarnspirations will be updated asap.
With the ombre yarn, the gradations of the blue are so close that it appears to literally transition though the stepping of the colour is instant when it happens. It can create a multitude of squares of colour variations that are really pleasing to the eye.
You can see in the squares the colour is jumping between the shades. You need 49 of these squares and you could have a large number of uniquely coloured squares to make it look like a patched quilt.
Red Heart Super Saver Ombre Yarn Amounts
In the original Jade, it was 9 balls of Super Saver. I believe the ombre version, is as follows.
Ombre is a large ball at 10 oz.
- 6 balls of Red Heart Super Saver Ombre
- 1.25 balls of Red Heart Super Saver Light Gray

To see this pattern in a project, see the Monkeying Around The Blanket. I’ve used that pattern for the basis of this tutorial.
