Crescent Bay shows off the cleverly dyed Caterpillargreen yarn to perfection. Rainbow ombre stripes are separated by grey in a shallow, asymmetrical triangular crescent. Beaded picots add a touch of glamour. Alternatively, this is a great stash buster. Use one colour for the grey areas and a range of other colours for the rainbow.
