I strategically planned this project to be eligible for two competitions – our Knitters Rumble March dyeing challenge and Art-by-Ana‘s March KAL.
I used a yarn dyed by Ana and combined it with a yarn I dyed myself. The resulting stripes are subtle as the colours are similar.
The pattern is the Shelburne Scarf (rav link) by Amy Christoffers from the summer 2011 issue of Knitscene. It’s a really simple striped garter stitch scarf knit lengthwise.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a good picture of it on me, so I posed it on a fence 🙂
