Vexillology is an elongated diamond shaped scarf and shawl design inspired by my love of colour and Dark Harbour Yarn.

It features a centre stockinette panel, intarsia, a notched garter edge and a contrast colour BO. It can be worked in two four or eight colours and if you can’t decided on colours I’ve also included a line drawing to colour in.

If you haven’t tried intarsia before, don’t worry, I’ve included a separate tutorial to help you out.
