Paper Bark Leaf SocksLace Leaf Pattern

Variegated yarns can be unpredictable.  Hand dyed socks yarns are generally designed to give a certain effect when worked on socks, but that effect is not always the same when used for say, a shawl.  The only thing is, that different effects develop from different circumferences.  This colorway is meant to have a lot of dappled effect with some diagonal striping, and this effect shows on this yarn.

Finding a stitch pattern to enhance this effect involves trying out a small all-over pattern, a larger predictable pattern, and a medium scale pattern.  In this case, the larger leaf pattern enhances the leaves and doesn’t obliterate the pattern.

Trial and error is a great option for a great marriage of stitch pattern and variegated yarn.    http://etsy.com/shop/SkyHighFibers
