Homemade Ombre Infinity Scarf

Materials:

  • Orange Tulip® permanent fabric dye
  • Purple Tulip® permanent fabric dye
  • Sunshine Tulip® permanent fabric dye
  • Salt
  • Disposable plastic table cover
  • Access to stove
  • Plastic tub or bucket
  • Tongs or stirring spoon
  • Stainless steel 5-gallon pot
  • Rubber gloves
  • Thermometer
  • Bulky white natural wool yarn project

Instructions:

  1. Pre-soak knit project in water in separate tub. (Tip: for more intense colors you can add sodium bicarbonate or baking soda).
     
  2. Clear off work surface. Cover with disposable plastic table cover.
     
  3. Place 5-gallon stainless steel pot on burner with minimum of 1 gallon of water.
     
  4. Turn burner to high and wait for water to boil. Add in 5 tablespoons salt for every gallon of water used.
     
  5. Once water has reached 180 degrees F, add ½ to 1 packet of Sunshine Tulip® Permanent Fabric Dye. Stir in dye with tongs or stirring spoon. Let dye fully dissolve.
     
  6. Wring out your project eliminating as much excess water as possible.
     
  7. Using the tongs or spoon, dip in the bottom portion of the project into the dye bath.
     
  8. Allow the project to sit in this bath for 5 minutes or longer depending on the color intensity desired.
     
  9. Remove project and add in remaining Sunshine dye. Maintain the dye bath at 180 degrees F and stir until the dye is fully dissolved.
     
  10. Repeat the process of dipping, but do not submerge up to the original dip line in order to create an ombré effect. Again hold the project in the bath for 5 or more minutes. (Tip: repetitive in and out of the bath will give you a less distinct line between colors).
     
  11. Repeat the above process using the Orange and Violet dyes.
     
  12. Place dyed project in drip safe area over plastic. We dried ours outside in the sun.
     
  13. Clean up dye as instructed by the package. Wipe up all drips.
     
  14. Once dye is completely dry rinse out excess dye with cold water in the sink until water runs clear. (Tip: start at the lighter end and wash to the darker end to make sure light colors are not contaminated.) Let it dry.
