So you've finally finished knitting that monochromatic sweater, but when you hang it up you suddenly see the bottom of your sweater is a completely different shade than the top! We've all been there. And there's one culprit behind this pesky issue: skeins from different dye lots.
Dyeing your own yarn can literally change everything. Instead of hunting for the perfect shade, you can create it with your own two hands. Pretty amazing, right? But before you go all color crazy, there are a few things you should know.
Whether you're obsessed with dyeing your own yarn or just buying hand-dyed yarn, you have probably already experimented with a lot of different patterns to see how those gorgeous colors work.

Hand dyeing cotton yarn —and any other yarn for that matter —gives you an endless rainbow of colors that you may not be able to find in your local yarn store. Grab those blah-hued hanks and let's talk about hand dyeing cotton yarn to turn it into an artsy fiber masterpiece!
