The variegations in each of 3 colors chosen for this striped pullover, provide lots of visual interest. In addition to the color play, some stripes are worked in an uncomplicated yet attractive lace pattern. The interactions between colors and textures in the stripes reminded me of geological formations, hence the name!
If you like working on your sweaters from the top down and playing with color combinations - that is a project for you!
