Peaks & Waves
Certain crochet stitches beg to be worked in hand-dyed yarns, and Spike Stitch is certainly one of those. While you could work this stitch in a single hand-dyed yarn, I like gather a group of somewhat related colors, contrasting in both hue and color weight and playing lighter colors against heavier ones.
