It may be impossible to stop a particular handpainted skein from pooling or striping, so this pattern fools the eye into ignoring it. The swirling textured pattern and bead accents pull attention away from any color patterning. Play around with different bead colors to see which combination creates a cohesive blend between the colors in the yarn.
