By using two strands of different colours you can create lovely soft marled effects. The options are endless with the delicious palette of colours in Cumulus.

Please note you can knit two ends together from two balls, or by taking the inside and the outside ends of one ball and knitting them together, it is easier though with this yarn to knit two ends from separate balls unless you only have one ball left.
