This gorgeous yarn is a brand new one from Trendsetter, a sport weight beauty with gradual color changes.
Called Evolution, each pre-wound cake is 100% merino wool, with 495 yards (+ or -) per 150g. The colors have some long color runs to give a very special look.
This is Colorway #9, aka Olive Or Twist , and is a wonderful play on blues and teals and olives.
About the Suggested Patterns
I am very fond of the patterns of Kieran Foley. His designs are not the simplest but they are very rewarding to create. And among the ones I especially like are those that play with Stacked Stitches.
This yarn would look awesome in any of these designs.
The simplest, in my opinion, is Jasper Lace, with three "resting" rows for every one with more complex stitches.
I greatly enjoyed knitting Hibiscus, as the design keeps changing in a most intriguing manner.
Frangipani was originally knit in the long color runs of Darling and should look really superb in Evolution.
The rest I haven't tried yet, to be honest, but they are very high up on my list. :-)
