A woven slip-stitch pattern randomizes the strong colors of this bulky yarn. Thick yarns make bolder stripes and pools, so they require strong measures to overcome patterning tendencies. Some slight pooling occurs, especially on the upper arms, but is lessened by the long floats of opposing color. A coordinating sandwashed solid provides a frame around all pieces, which are joined with an external 3-needle bind-off. Edge that frame with a 2-stitch i-cord bind-off, and enjoy the syncopatio of hand-dyed colors marching all around.
