Do you have variegated yarn in your collection and loved it at the store but once you started to crochet it, you weren’t loving it so much? You can control your colouring so much more by using D-Link Double Crochet.
Variegated to me is a hit or miss. Sometimes it can work out lovely, but other times, it can really hurt the look of the project. It’s pretty personal.
So you have 3 options:
Crochet the project as is. The yarn colouring comes out naturally.
You can Plan Pool to create a plaid like look. See tutorial below.

How to Double Crochet Link: D-Link Crochet
Double Crochet Link is also known as abbreviations of D-Link. Usually when I talk about this stitch, I simply call it D-Link as it’s easier to roll off the tongue.
With regular double crochet, there are gaps between the stitches. Known as the posts. We’ve come to accept that in crochet and is part of the stitchwork. Sometimes, that look and gapping spaces are not what we want.
Same used Bernat Beyond Yarn. Double Crochet Link connects the posts in two spots along the post as well as the top of the stitch. This gives the illusion that it could be 3 single crochet rounds / rows when it’s just one pass of Double Crochet Link.
