Choose at least three colors to knit this biased garter stitch scarf. Begin with the lightest color and transition into a darker color by knitting two-row stripes until you are ready to work the new color on its own. The subtle stripes blend tonal and speckled yarns together for a smooth gradient effect. This pattern was originally part of the Westknits Yarn-a-Long 2016.
