Spectra is a simple lightweight scarf featuring two fingering weight yarns. Short rows create a playful shape that curves and coils as you wear it draped around your neck and shoulders. A simple intarsia maneuver entwines two strands of yarn, creating seamless wedges that resemble a rainbow or color wheel. You won’t want to stop knitting as the colors unfold! I paired one color of West Wool Bicycle together with a self-striping gradient colorway from Bilum yarns.
