Printed yarn
Hi, I just have a question about multi-coloured yarns today.
I've got with me a skein of this yarn (the multi-coloured version, mine is a mix of white-grey-brown). On the knitting that I'm doing the colours appear as random streaks of colours and it's not really a problem for me.
Then I came across this and the sample swatch they had at the store shows Fair Isle colour pattern, not just random rows of colour.
It got me curious, how does one know what the gauge is to be to make the pattern appear? Is that the same one as the suggested gauge on the yarn info? And can all multi-coloured yarn produce a pattern of their own?

I'm sorry if that was confusing and/or I'm mixing up my vocab, I don't often do knitting talk.
Cheers!
