June 2012
Sport (12 wpi) ?

in garter stitch (but gauge isn't important)
US 5 - 3.75 mm
570 - 0 yards (521 - 0 m)

This pattern is available for free.

This recipe for a modular scarf was inspired by the stunning colors of The Fiberists’ yarn. I challenged myself to create a scarf that incorporated one of The Fiberists’ most saturated, vibrant colors (I called it the “adventure” color), pairing it with more muted colors from my stash to both make the vibrant main color sing and create a more versatile garment.

The sample scarf uses:
210 yards of A (The Fiberists Audubon Sport)
95 yards of B (gray/blue; I used Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sport)
215 yards of C (natural; I used sport weight alpaca in natural from Times Remembered farm)
65 yards of D (pink/purple; I used Drachenwolle merino sport weight in Aphrodite)
