Colormeld was born from a stash of Noro Kureyon – an assortment of balls in different colors – and, as shown, is made from slightly less than two balls of each of two colors.

The finished weight of Colormeld as pictured is approximately 155 grams, and the scarf measures 7” wide by 60” long.

The pattern stitch is garter-stitch based and is worked over an odd number of stitches, using yarn-overs and K2 together decreases to create the texture. The finished piece is identical on both sides. Colormeld is a great stash-buster, and can be made in just about any yarn.

To achieve the effect shown in the photos, use two colors of Kureyon, alternating colors every two rows. Pattern includes directions and photos for working with the two colors and carrying yarn up the side.

The gauge and needle size for Colormeld will depend upon the yarns chosen. The gauge of the scarf pictured in this pattern is approximately 3.8 sts = 1” on a #9 needle. Add or subtract stitches from the directions to achieve the desired width. Just make sure to always have an odd number.

Colormeld is completely customizable and may be worked in one color only, in one solid and one variegated color, or in two solids. Make it in your favorite colors of Kureyon, or experiment with other yarns to find just the perfect combination!
