This is not a knitting pattern, more a recipe for a creative endeavour. A collection of tips. It’s not difficult to knit, but it does require a bit of skill.

The piece is a truly improvised effort and even if I could write a row by row pattern, it would be perhaps more of a hindrance to the creative process. Arm yourself with 2 full skeins in similar colours and and a bunch of Sock Minis or sock yarn scraps in contrasting colours and off you go. Pick up stitches, change direction, cast on some stitches, knit a smaller then a bigger section.

It’s fun and freeing. If in doubt, improvise and add another colour. Then add one more colour! Yay!

The measurements are:
212cm x 35cm for the finished scarf and 12cm x 24cm for the first rectangle.
Happy Knitting!
