I would love to make this Afghan, but I can't find the Paton Ombre yarn for the main 8 balls. Could someone please point out where to purchase this Patons Ombre. Much appreciated!

The yarn required for this pattern is Patons Classic wool, the colour is called ombre and it is available on the yarnspirations website.

This is a beautiful blanket. I do not like switching colors and weaving in the ends though. Has anyone done it all with just the ombre? Would it make much difference? Or is there a way to join yarn without weaving in ends?

There is a way of joining ends without having to weave in ends, it's called russian join and there are lots of youtube videos to show how to do it. Hope this helps. Happy knitting

You could also consider carrying your colors up the sides. This would work very well in the sections where you're doing two rows one color, two rows another color, and switching back and forth between the colors like that. You essentially catch the color you're not using at the beginning of each row. Lots of tutorials online to show you how.
