Combining changes in texture with changes in colour, this clever scarf will show off your knitting skills and keep the happy wearer snug. The coloured blocks will help you to get your stitch patterns right, as you'll know that when it's time to change yarn, it's also time to change pattern. The stitches are as basic as can be, just using good old knit and purl with no yarn forwards, knitting together or any other fancy effects.
Because it's so simple, the scarf is a great beginner's project. If you find the contrasting colours look daunting, trust us, there's nothing to worry about. Swapping the colours of yarn in and out is easy. Using a separate ball for each stripe means you don't carry yarn backwards and forwards across the back of the scarf - not only does this look more attractive, it's more economical as it uses far less yarn.
