#1-3: these are more or less conventional single and bi-colour patterns
#4-8: these modern variations exploit changes in colour and texture of variegated yarn as it passes through the fingers – the hook is inserted under the back or front loop only of a stitch to create a relief texture or smoothness on the surface respectively.
#9: This technique can also be used to emphasize or disguise tonal differences in a variegated smooth (#7 & #8) or textured (#9) yarn
