As a general rule, if you want your stitch pattern to really stand out, choose a smooth, single color yarn.

You can use a lightly variegated yarn too, but just remember that the more colors in the yarn, the more it will distract from the pattern. Never use a novelty, fuzzy, eyelash, glittery or multicolored yarn when you really want to show off stitches. There are some exceptions to this rule, but like I said, this is just generally speaking.
