Its name meaning "a thousand colors," this fingering weight yarn dramatically self-stripes in a kaleidoscope of unsuspected tones.
The tight twist of this soft single ply is deliberately a bit uneven, to lend depth and texture.
The chevrons (shown below) are worked with single increases and decreases – no knots in your fingers trying to knit complicated double decreases, and no double increases where the stitches get tight and hard to work with.
Giving up control of the color combinations is oddly liberating.
Kate just finished the sample at left, which we have displayed at Argyle.
She and Kate both used Mille Colori Baby, two balls each of the colors 51 and 52.
