this scarf pattern is knit with handpainted yarn sideways (long rows) instead of across. This creates a pleasing vertical pattern akin to the texture of a mixed or handpainted warp in weaving. Originally created with our Corriedale, Corriedale cross yarn, it works in any woolen spun worsted weight yarn.
Working in our Montadale true woolen yarn, you just need one skein of the handpaint and one of the solid for the rolled edge. Pattern has three length/width proportions. Other yarns that work well are the Tunis double twist or Targhee two ply. Comfortable & warm. this very (very) easy scarf will be one you grab all the time
