Having already crocheted with this Robin variegated dk yarn, I wanted to see what it would look like when knitted. The colour changes are VERY short. It is really only possible to knit 2, 3, or 4 stitches before the pink changes to purple, then to lilac. I actually looked forward to the colour pooling in larger blobs because otherwise the effect would have been just small speckles.
I slightly prefer the knitted effect to the crocheted effect, but don't think I have yet found the ideal pattern to use with this yarn. I have another 300g of this yarn just waiting for a project. I'm open to suggestions!!
The hat pattern is one of my favourite as it is so simple. The "small adult" size used only 33g of yarn. Here it is on Ravelry.
