Araucania Huasco Sock is not only a great variegated yarn for socks--it patterns beautifully in sweaters, hats and cowls as well. The yarn is peppered with lovely colors and has a nylon component which helps maintain the shape of your finished item.
Take a look at the lovely Pepper Cowl by Jo Allport! The cowl is a simple lace pattern worked flat with 1 skein of Huasco Sock (model is wearing Pavo Real) and size #3 straight or circular needles. The pattern is available for purchase on ravelry.com.
