Self-striping yarns are amazing, but why stripe when you can stack? It’s all in the setup for this color stacking scarf with easy lace detail. Simple intarsia with three balls of yarn causes the colors to pool vertically rather than stripe horizontally for this “how-did-you-do-that?” project.

Skill Level: Easy
Required Skills: Cast on, knit, purl, easy lace, bind off. Intarsia experience is helpful but not required.
One Size
Finished Measurements: 79” / 200cm length; 9.5” / 24cm width
Gauge: 19 sts and 24 rows = 4” / 10cm in stockinette stitch; 20 sts and 21 rows = 4” / 10cm in pattern stitch. Gauge is not critical for this project but a different gauge will affect yarn requirements and size of finished piece. Take time to check gauge. After working a gauge swatch, do not cut yarn. Block it, measure it, then unravel it to reclaim the yarn.
Materials:

  • Yarn: Worsted weight variegated yarn with long color changes; 570 yards / 521m. Model shown in Sprightly Yarns Spectrum Worsted by Craftsy (50% Wool, 50% Acrylic, 150yds / 174m per 100g), 3 skeins, color Plum Crazy
  • Needles: US 8 / 5mm straight needles , or size needed to obtain gauge
  • Crochet hook size H / 5mm for crochet cast on (optional)
  • 3 resealable plastic baggies, sandwich size
  • Permanent marker
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle

Notes:
After casting on and working four rows, this project is worked in three columns of intarsia (segments). Each segment is worked with its own skein of yarn. To make sure that each segment starts with a different color, examine the yarn ends of each purchased skein and re-wind into center-pull balls if necessary. When working across each row, be sure to pick up the new yarn from under the yarn begin dropped to link the yarns as for intarsia and prevent holes in the fabric.
