Still Waters: A Scarf in 3 gauges
Color pooling and not enough yardage for a whole scarf from the single ball provided; these are often encountered problems, as we have all coveted some stunning handpainted yarn and, either prohibited by cost or by lacking immediate project ideas, have ended up with a single ball of that fiber art. This scarf
cuts the cost and extends precious yardage by bringing in a solid color, stash busts, and provides a speedy gift or personal indulgence. It is cast on long ways as I have always been more enticed by a finite number of very long rows than by an infinite number of short rows to complete a cervical warmth device.
