Secret of the Stole iii continues to ease itself off my needles in bits and fits. This is section #5 of the mystery Knit-Along:
The yarn is Malabrigo laceweight in a light green (“lettuce”). Malabrigo yarn is always variegated, because it’s kettle dyed– that means the dyes are absorbed unevenly by the yarn. Variegated yarn inevitably adds a kind of “striping” to your finished object, but since the stole will be worn horizontally, the stripes will be more or less vertical. Also, they’re not terribly pronounced, against the pink beads and the overall lace pattern.
