Color Effects

I’ve been using the same basic weaving draft and using variegated yarn and color placement to get different effects.

This scarf uses a variegated yarn with very short color bursts.  I’ve put the color change in the weft (horizontal strands) against a steel grey warp (vertical).

When I put the color change in the warp the effect is completely different.  This yarn changes color about every 6 inches.
