Knitted on Singer 2310 double bed machine, which is a 5mm machine from the Superba stable

This started off as a swatch, but it went so well that I decided to make it into a scarf!

Started on 1x1 rib T4 across 25-0-25 in MC (Palm)
Knitted 8 rows.

Changed to fisherman’s rib (circular and tuck buttons on both carriages) T6, bed space 3

Threaded up a second pair of carriages with the petrol blue yarn.

Knitted a few rows of narrow stripes - 11 stripes of each colour - using 2 passes of one carriage, then 2 of the other - these appeared as single rows.

Changed to 4 passes of each carriage pair, knitted
152 stripes of each colour

Finished the end symmetrically (ie with narrow stripes as at the beginning).

Used 240g in all, so about 120 of each - although slightly more of the lighter colour.

3 of the small ribber weights to start, adding one claw weight each side when it got a bit longer (and moving these up every few rows.) Rolled scarf to rehang ribber weights when near the floor, but it was easier to use a metal knitting needle threaded through knitting to hang claw weights from - especially since the stripes made it easy to position the needle horizontally.

Finished dimensions - as far as I could determine for this shape-shifting fisherman’s rib scarf
