What Types of Yarn??
Hello, I'm trying to make a scarf that is warm, but still nice to look at. I've found a great pattern, but now I wan't to know what type of yarn will be the best for making it. Plus, I'm on a bit of a "yarn diet" so, please take that into consideration.

Well, the pattern said Cascade 220 yarn, but I'm not sure if that's the color I want... I also want my yarn to be multicolored, not a solid color.

Cascade 220 is a standard worsted/light worsted weight yarn that comes 220 yds per 100 grams. If you have another worsted in a variegated yarn it'll work out fine.
