In this generous scarf, a simple ribbing pattern ‘phases’ across the rows, allowing complex colorways to shift and stack their colors in mysterious and enchanting ways.

Instructions and yardage calculations offered for 3 different gauges of yarn: Aran, Worsted, and DK.

• Aran: approx. 660 yards / 604m and US10 / 6mm needles
• Worsted: approx. 825 yards / 755m and US 9 / 5mm needles
• DK: approx. 900 yards / 823m and US7 / 4.5mm needles

Sample pictured used just 2 skeins Blue Moon Fiber Arts Plushy in colorway ’A Total Eclipse of the Sun’.

Tina recommends the following colorways for similar pooling effects:
Dark Side of the Blue Moon, Blue Moon Rising, Smoky Mountain Morn, Grayple, Morpheus.

Instructions for optional tubular cast on and bind off are also included (with step-by-step photo tutorials), to help you get tidy, professional-looking edges!

When the knitting is this relaxing and easy, and the result so visually compelling … that’s where the magic happens.
