Rainbow Fish Infinity Scarf was inspired by the popular children’s book The Rainbow Fish, by Swiss author and artist Marcus Pfister. It is a story about a beautiful fish that learns to make friends by sharing his colorful scales.

This project was designed to highlight a blend of recycled sari silk, Merino, and angora collected from my own rabbits, which resulted in a soft, iridescent handspun yarn with flecks of all the colors of the rainbow.

The infinity scarf was designed to be wrapped twice around the neck. Both sides of the scarf are equally beautiful, so it can be worn showing either or both sides of the work. This pattern would also work well featuring art yarn or thick-and-thin yarn that can be hard to match with a knitting pattern.
