Prpl rain is a set containing a beanie and a long, vintage-like, narrow scarf, both with a very easy stitch pattern that is very useful to use with variegated yarns. It effectively breaks up the ‘pooling’ in these gorgeous skeins by the use of lots of yarn overs. It equally looks good in solid or semi-solids. Two large pompoms finish the scarf.
Included is a separate pdf with a photo tutorial on how to make the pompoms.

Thank you GardenKate for proofreading the pattern in search of typos and errors.
