Contoura works well with variegated yarns as well as gradient packs, self-striping yarns or even oddments from your stash. The modular nature helps break up, and at the same time, accentuate the details in the yarn.
The pattern comes in 5 sizes, and includes illustrated tutorials for the techniques that you may not have met elsewhere, in particular that detail that outlines each of the short row sections.
This sample is shown in a DK yarn from new Italian indie dyer Live or Dye yarn. Lorena very kindly sent me a couple of skeins to play with, and the yarn knits up beautifully!
Enjoy Contoura - it's a fun knit!
