What is Variegated Yarn?

According to Wikipedia, variegated yarn is yarn dyed with more than one color. This can include self striping yarn and yarns with a mix of color, such as speckles and gradient yarns.

Variegated yarn can add interest to crochet projects with varying colors and stripes. Using this type of yarn also can reduce the number of ends that need to be woven in at the end of a project.

The Best Variegated Yarns

When choosing a multicolored yarn as my favorite, I am a little biased because I love Mandala Yarn by Lion Brand! It is a cake yarn that has a high yardage, so I can work up plenty of projects with just one skein of yarn.

  • Mandala Yarn by Lion Brand (my favorite!)
  • Caron Cakes by Yarnspirations

Mandala is available in variations such as Mandala Ombre, Mandala Stripes and more. It is my go-to choice of yarn with multiple colors because of how beautifully it works up in crochet patterns.

Make sure to take a look at the free crochet patterns listed below that use this self-striping yarn!

I also suggest trying other variegated yarns too, like the ones listed below.

Caron Cakes: Caron cakes is a self-striping yarn that is a worsted weight yarn and has 383 yards in each cake. It is also available in other varieties such as Cotton Cakes and more!
