Simple Gifts Day 22 - Chromium Scarf

  • October 22, 2014

Texture and color play off of and complement each other in today's bias-knit scarf!

Chromium Scarf, by David O'Kelly, is available for £3.00 GBP (~$5.00) from Ravelry.  It uses alternating stripes of garter and stockinette stitch in three colors to create a wonderfully squishy, stripy scarf.  In more subtle neutrals or earthy colors it would make a great guy's scarf, or go bold and bright and choose team or school colors.  

Our sample uses Plymouth DK Merino Superwash, one skein of color 1117 (Light Gray), two each of 1107 (Nutmeg) and 1130 (Claret).  We chose to only knit five out of seven stripe sequence repeats for a scarf measuring 78"; there would be plenty left to do the last two repeats if desired.  Unless, of course, you use the rest for yesterday's Zig Zag Wings Hat like we did - the zig zags and bias stripes make a great coordinating set!

Be sure to check out our Ravelry project page notes, we also made a slight change to the way the decreases are written to make the scarf edges match up a little more neatly.
