I planned my first pastel ripple of the year around the colors in a variegated yarn; pink, green, white, and yellow. I chose not to use any yellow solid yarn with it. I had scrap balls of two greens, and at least two whites. Very few of the yarns I used closely match the colors in the variegated yarn, but I think including colors that aren’t perfectly matched makes a blanket more interesting to look at.

Sometime last year I made another ripple using the same variegated yarn and got rather different results.
