Gather a colorful collection of yarns to knit this large textured scarf. You can knit each section as long as you want for a personalized collage of stripes. The striped sections include garter stitch, knit ‘n slide, brioche, and garter ridges staggered between stockinette/reverse stockinette sections.

Sizes: Small Large
Sizes are based on gauge and yarn weight. The length is customizable.

Finished Measurements: 80 (106)“ / 203 (269)cm long, 16 (18)” / 41 (46)cm wide.

Yarn: Worsted (chunky) weight
The green/orange/purple/speckled sample scarf uses 1 strand of aran weight held together with 1 strand of lace weight mohair/silk to achieve a chunky fabric.

Yardage: Approximately 1250 (1500)yds / 1143 (1372)m total

The large sample uses 8 colors of Hedgehog Fibres Merino Aran held together with coordinating color of kidsilk mohair. If you have approximately 150-200yds / 137-183m of each color, that will be enough to create a generously sized scarf. Feel free to use as many colors as you like. This fabric is ideal for using up leftover bits of yarn.

If you wish to make a similar fabric with fuzzy mohair, you will need the recommended yardage for both the worsted or aran weight AND the kidsilk mohair.

Shown in: Hedgehog Fibres Aran held together with Hedgehog Fibres Kidsilk Lace (orange/green/purple/speckles sample)
