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 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.

Well, I finished my cowl and it’s very soft and warm. I made this cowl taller than my other ones because after you wear them for a few hours, they sort of “fall” and scrunch down. I chose this yarn because of all the different colors in it so it should go nice with the variety of sweaters and turtlenecks I have.

Here it is lying flat. I used a seed stitch border instead of a ribbed border for something different.
