I planned Tranquility around the colors in the Red Heart Super Saver variegated yarn called Aspen Print. I chose only four yarns, RHSS Light Sage and Warm Brown, plus an unlabeled cream and a vintage dark brown.
10,418 stitches crocheted – 966,185 donated since Jan. 2011
Aspen Print is an unusual variegated yarn; its color segments are so short, every crochet stitch contains at least two colors. It makes soft, tweedy ripple stripes:
Although I have four more skeins of Aspen Print, I have no plans for starting another ripple series, like the series of seven I did with French Country, another variegated yarn. Still, I can’t resist comparing 2011’s #15, Soothing, which also included Aspen Print, with today’s Tranquility.
