A lot of knitting trends have popped up in the last couple of months, but one that I really love is speckled yarn.
SPECKLED YARN IS DYED WITH A DOMINANT BACKGROUND COLOR AND LITTLE SPECKS OF OTHER COLORS ADDED.
It’s a distant cousin to variegated yarn, but they’re just a little different. The specks in speckled yarn are too small to create self-striping colors like variegated yarn. So rather than have, say, a yard of a red, you’ll just see small specks of red show up and disappear within a few stitches.
Many knitters are intimidated by crazy-bold color choices, but you can’t go wrong with speckles! If you want to jump on the speckled yarn trend, check out some of the yarns and patterns available on Craftsy that use this cool dyeing technique.
