Cons: Wrapping your head around which colors to buy since their naming convention is unusual could be a challenge if you’re intimidated by selecting color combos online.
Pros: This yarn is a lot of fun, and opens up a lot of opportunities to play with stripe, gradient and color in your knitting. And hey, if you’re finding yourself curious about that fade shawl that’s so popular but don’t want to stash dive for it, you could buy a whole set of Magical Dye Pot colors (all of the D options, for example), and go to town knowing the colors are dyed to work together.
Pattern ideas: Because of the striping and gradient possibilities, I’d go ahead and knit a Top Notched Shawl, playing with the striping in creative ways. For crochet, it would be fun to play with a tiny gauge version of the Scraps Scallops Scarf, using it as an opportunity to play with making your own gradient stripes.
