The colors meld and marl (not sure that's a verb) together to make a truly extraordinary pallet of warm and cool greens and roses. I am surprised how good it looks with denim but that's lovely synchronicity since I wear it all the time. Here's a crappy picture of me in my flannel nightgown, denim vest, and Sashay. What a site.
I didn't make any modifications because I loved how it looked on the cover of the new Berroco Lodge booklet. I'm not that crazy about the rest of the patterns because they rely on color pooling - not my favorite look. But by alternating two different colorways, the completely striping disappears in the Sashay.
My only advice: unless you want to make your scarf significantly longer like I did, you should buy only three balls of each color rather than the prescribed four. Even though I extended my scarf, I still had an entire extra ball of rose and a third of green left at the end.
The pattern calls for Lodge, a new offering from Berroco, which the company describes as, "mesmerizing color transitions... punctuated with vibrant tweed flecks. The lofty wool blend is spun into a single ply and works up quickly into gorgeous stripes." The yarn is comprised of 47% nylon, 47% wool, and 6% rayon; I prefer all-natural fibers, but this combination creates warmth and softness around my sensitive neck. Berroco Lodge retails for $8.00 a skein and comes in ten lovely colorways.
