Question about cables

I’m a beginner and learning to knit cables. My question is, are cables ever done in variegated yarns or are they done mostly with solid yarns to better show the effect? TIA

You can knit them in whatever yarn you like. They will be easier to see in a solid colored yarn, but that isn’t required.

Thanks! I think it was Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in Cranapple Stripes.

I should have looked at the picture before replying! I believe that is Songbird Stripe.
