I find fancy stitches get "lost" with varigated yarns, so the simpler the better.

you can make it any size you want! and add stripes of solid if you want to break it up. The twisting action and small "blocks" usually prevents "pooling"

I'm a newbie crocheter myself (just started in December 2011). On yarn shopping trips those variegated yarns always look so beautiful, like candy. But when you try out any sophisticated pattern, the intricate stitches get lost. E.g., I tried making a Catherine's Wheel Throw (http://www.redheart....s-wheel-throw) in a Loops & Threads Impeccable medium weight yarn in neopolitan (http://www.ebay.com/...3-/370622104859, so pretty, looks like neopolitan ice cream!) and it came out scary looking!

I also second the corner to corner throw someone linked to. The yarn used in the one on the pattern is Monet Print, with very short color runs, but it seems to work well with regular ombres too. The only one I have not liked it with is RHSS Peruvian that has quite long runs of some colors and it make it look too stripey for my taste. The alternating directions of these stitches make more distinct blocks of color than some other patterns.
I also agree with the round ripple suggestion.
I agree with how gorgeous these yarns look in the skein. I''m a real sucker for them in the stores, but it has taken me a long time to find patterns for them.
