I split all five shades of my yarn into plys and mixed them up for an awesome subtly striped marled effect. I love the way it turned out! I split each shade into 3 plys, then I twisted three different color plys together, crocheted two rows, then took out two of the plys and added back in two different color plys, but kept one color consistent, then I did two rows, then switched out two again (this time, switching out the color I left in before), and so on. It created a very subtle striping that I think is awesome.
