This yarn drifts from one colour to another and then back again - meaning that your project can be symmetrical. There is a pattern for a knit or crochet scarf inside the ball band, but with 600m in the cake there's plenty of options. The yarn is four strands held together, they aren't properly plied, so it may be splitty to work with. The cotton/acrylic blend has the benefit of being wool-free but is also wonderfully soft, smooth and drapey. The cake can be worked from the middle or the outside. This is machine washable so it would even make fun baby blankets!
