I just finished my first scarf, knit in Paton's Decor variegated yarn. When I held it up to admire it I noticed one end (where I had started a second ball) was striped, and the rest was pooled. I had tried to start the second ball at the same color in the pattern as I ended with, and I was hoping the design would pool all the way through. I may frog the striped end, but that's another story (and possibly another help thread!).
How do I anticipate the design and make sure it's the same after I start a new ball? I'm on the next scarf now, in a Plymouth Boku variegated (looks like longer colorways than the Paton's), and I want to be sure this doesn't happen again. Please help...Thanks!
