I wanted to make myself a shawl with some fall colors, so I just picked up some worsted weight yarn. I searched around for something that might inspire me to use this new yarn in a shawl, but nothing seems to be right for it. The variegated yarn (in my opinion) seems to be center stage and doesn’t show up anything really detailed. I tried some different stitches including cables (which I thought for sure would look great), but they seem to get lost in the color changes.
I have some matching yarn in the forest green, pumpkin, brown, and burgundy colors in this yarn…can I do maybe a rectangular shawl with the variegated yarn, and then put panels of the solid yarn in between with a cable pattern? Or would that not look right? I’m stumped as to what I can do. I really like the colorway of this yarn, but I don’t know what to make with it, and I didn’t want to do a plain garter or stockinette shawl because I think I’ll be bored senseless knitting it.
