What patterns are good for variegated yarns?

I continue to dye yarn and that’s not a big surprise lately!  I go to bed at night thinking about what colors I want to use next and the next thing I know the alarm is going off.  It must be time to get up and dye yarn before I have to go to my “real” job that actually allows me to have money to purchase more “sheep”, oh, I mean wool.

I was wondering what patterns you have found that work well for variegated yarns? Feedback is most welcome!

Here’s a list to get us started with:

Cookie A’s Monkey Socks

Flecktone fingerless gloves by Susan Moskwa

The Colorist

Broken Seed Stitch Socks

Miss Winkle

Here is a recently dyed hank of sock yarn and I think I’ll try a cowl or shawl and use the variegated yarn on one row and a coordinating semi-solid on the next.  Hopefully that will prevent some pooling of colors.
