Choose balls for syncopated gradients in a scarf, or bombs for loooonger transitions and a double-wide wrap.

This scarf is worked on the bias with two different long-repeat yarns to create a soft, reversible, textured fabric.

Working simultaneously with two long-repeat balls like the ones from Freia fibers is entertaining because the color play between the balls evolves with the knitting. The repeats are so long they can extend across an entire ball, and the choice for the start has a big effect on the final look.
