Color on Color Scarf





It is exciting to see this scarf coming together. But it's been a wrist killer, so progress has been slow. Here it is so far......

(In the closeup of the Fair Isle section you can see the turning row. )

    This scarf looks like it's seriously complicated to knit. It's one of my favourites, but I am intimidated by the potential difficulties in making it.

    I thought that too before I decided to knit mine, but it's really nothing much more complex than knitting and purling. It just looks difficult because of all the color changes and sections. Keeping track of the step I was on in the pattern and finding the right color yarn from the pile was the hardest part.
    Don't be afraid! It's SO worth it!

    To whomever was wondering about a kit for this scarf in the previous post--I got mine way back when from http://ruhamas.com/
    but I had to call. Perhaps they still offer it.

    Margaret---don't be afraid. As splatgirl said, the pattern is simple. Just keep track of where you are and LABEL THAT YARN WELL!!!

    It's a lot of fun. (Though the fair isle section has caused a flair up of my wrist problems.)

    Thanks for posting the info on the scarf kit - I called and they STILL HAD some kits available and I got mine this week!

    Absolutely you should try it if you love the scarf. I'm about 4/5 of the way done and still loving it. You MUST make a copy of the pattern and highlight or check off each line as you finish. I put my yarn in ziploc sandwich bags with the color #s written in Sharpie on the bag, which helped keep my sanity.
