My 5 yr old dd wants a "rainbow" pattern poncho. She doesn't want stripes; but wants the colors to "blend in" (blotchy). Is there such thing out there? I am not going to join colors manually - it's too much for a beginner. Please help pick a yarn if there is such thing out there.
Thanks in advance
What's your budget? Red Heart Kids or Super Saver has a rainbowy-variegated yarn
Red Heart Kids Colors
Red Heart Super Saver Economy Size Colors
Lorna's Laces, also has some really pretty rainbow colorways like Child's Play and Rainbow
Any price range will be fine. Thanks.
:figureditout: I have an idea, you guys should dye your own yarn with Kool-Aid! I think a 5-year-old would be able to help out and she would be so proud wearing something that she helped "make."
Dying is a good idea. I would do that if I had the time to, but I have put it off at a low priority list for the time being. I have the time to knit, however, on the train. Thanks for the advise though.
Caron Simply Soft has SHadows. It's really lovely. I saw it today at Michael's. It's similar to the Trekking sock yarn the softly blends up and down.

Edit: sorry about the double post, don't know what happened.
I used SS Shadows for a Clapotis and didn't like it as much as I though I would. Since only one ply of the four is variegated, the color change wasn't as distince as true variegated yarn. There's a lot of self striping yarn out there, bound to be something you and your daughter would like.
