I'll never combine brands of yarn for this type of ghan again if I can help it. The blue is one of RH's thinner colors and the red is one of Caron's thicker colors and I can tell that it's a little too off. I'm hoping that it'll blend better after it's washed.
I always do the first round of a spidey ghan in black. It makes the webbing look better.
I did a simple color technique. Each block of color grew by 1 round.
4 rounds of blue
5 rounds of red
6 rounds of blue
7 rounds of red
I also place a back round every 4 rounds. This makes for even webbing and I think a very cool pattern to the blocks of color. The first and last round are always black.
So - that's the spidey ghan. Onto my next project - not sure what that's going to be yet.
