The Rainbow Loop Scarf is inspired by the beautiful colours from The Knitting Goddess, an independent hand dyer of British knitting yarns. This design is knit using a gradient set of minis and a solid colour. The scarf can be worn as a long loop to show off the gradient effect, or doubled to wear as an extra cosy accessory.

Beginning with a provisional CO, the scarf is knit in the round using a simple stranded knitting chart. After 24 repeats of the chart, the ends are grafted together to create a loop.
