    Abstract: A yarn includes a continuous strand formed with equally spaced equally dimensioned loops for knitting a multi-colored design in a knitted work formed of “p” courses or rows and “q” wales by sequentially pulling one loop in one row through a previously applied loop in an adjacent loop. The continuous strand is sequentially colored along its length with colors “Ci”, “C2” . . . “Cn” to correspond to the colors of the stitches of the design over said p courses and q wales. A method of producing a single strand of yarn formed with equally spaced equally dimensioned loops, segments or section includes creating a grid of “p” courses or rows and “q” columns or wales; mapping a non-random distinct design on the grid to be formed by stitches of one of n colors; translating the grid to color sequences in each row corresponding to the color stitches in successive rows in the grid; and coloring loops, segments or sections of the strand of loopy yarn with the color sequence represented by the successive rows of the grid.
