Some people claim that scarves make for a boring project both to knit and wear, but they are wrong. I’m personally challenging you to go for something bold in both look and technique. This project is a great quick gift knit and a perfect first time introduction to stacked increases and decreases, a technique which creates extreme waves of color.

The aesthetic is inspired by Op Art, a movement originating in the ’60s which uses visual trickery to turn flat canvases into paintings with the illusion of movement or dimensionality. Though the suggested color scheme will create an almost 3D look, experimenting with different colors and stripe orders will give you an equally interesting result.
