Colorblocking meets ombré in the Mélange scarf. Imagined as a knitter’s version of paint-by-numbers, five strands of laceweight Vale are held together in differing combinations of light and dark colors to create subtle shifts of tone and value. The medley of light and dark make for well-blended yet striking sections up the scarf, while the multiple strands worked together amplify Vale’s softness and cushiony bounce.

The sweater shown on the model is Jared Flood’s Backbay pullover from the BT Fall 14 Collection.
