Colorblock Knit Scarf
Last week I started this new scarf pattern / project because I’m itching to have a new fun scarf before winter is completely over. Colorblocking is so pervasive, but yet I’ve never seen scarves like this with two single vertical stripes. Easy to do, with a simple intarsia twist to join up the colors, and knitting it up in the moss stitch. As soon as I’m done, I’ll post the pattern.
- Yarn: Cascade 220 wool — 2 skeins of Coral & 2 skeins of Silver Grey
- Needles: size 8
I couldn’t decide at first on the stitch. I tried out the bee stitch, but after a few rows my fabric wasn’t looking the way I wanted. I love that stitch, but think it might work better with yarn with more stitch definition, like cotton. Also, maybe I don’t know how to correctly “knit one below.” So I ended up with the old moss stitch, which I’m incredibly biased towards, but kinda hate to knit. My friend says this looks like a “grandma stitch” (in a very fond way because she loves all things grandma) which I think is kinda neat when it’s paired up with a modern colorblocked design.
