During a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, in my current quest to branch out and add more colored yarns to my patterns, I came across Yarn Bee Dazzling yarn. Most of the color options didn’t do much for me, but a skein of “Morning Haze” practically jumped off the shelf and into my cart (you’ve had that happen before too, right?). It is soooo pretty! The steely purple, blue and gray color changes are long and subtle (just how I like them), and a continuous metallic thread gives the yarn such a pretty reflective finish. It is definitely on the lighter side of the #4 worsted category, comparable to the feel of Caron Simply Soft or Bernat Satin.

When I first started playing with it, I was afraid that my 3rd loop stitches would get completely lost in the busyness of the yarn. And while they certainly don’t jump off the scarf, one of the things I love about the finished product is the understated texture that is magnified when the light hits it in a certain way.

Of course, this pattern would be beautiful in a solid-colored yarn as well, and I may try that next!
