Nightingale’s Eye is a stunning study in color inspired by a style of Persian glass-blowing featuring diagonal bands of colored glass.

Combining a series of five-color gradients with a light-as-a-feather mohair blend, this cozy scarf starts with a mitred square knit from the center out in concentric rings of color, and continues in bias-knit garter to delicate pointed ends.

After a few fiddly rows, the pattern is easy to memorize and easy to knit – perfect for travel or social knitting.

Please note - this pattern does is written to go with the Infinite Twist kit for this project (which comes with the yarn already wound in gradients) and does not include row-by-row instructions for color changes.
