Notes

After watching Felicia Lo’s Craftsy class on spinning colors, I decided to try one of the techniques on this braid. I stripped it lengthwise repeatedly, then spun (DD) the thin strips end to end, keeping the same color sequence each time. The singles were then chain plied (IT). The result is a self-striping yarn with small color repeats.
