The love of color, and stripes paired with an obsessive sock yarn stash inspired Rainbow City (AKA…very small town in Alabama)! Madelinetosh sock yarn was used in the sample….clearly lots of leftovers of the bright colors. The good news is that Tosh Unicorn Tails, and The Fiber Seed, Seedlings are a great substitute.

This scarf is knitted in the round on a diagonal. It has a keyhole for a bulk free option of tying around your neck.
