I also have two cakes of rifton, Appalachian trail with 6 blue and green solid skeins to possibly make a throw. With my other 2 rifton cakes I just started a throw hoping to emphasize the color changes. I found a graph that had you starting out with 8 sts and adding yarnovers between to make the beginning of 4 triangles. So far in one day I'm up to 50 stitches between yarnovers on each triangle. It's really enhancing the color changes nicely and they should form a nice square without having to join anything.
