Striation Scarf has elegantly tapered ends and is worked sideways with decreases forming a central spine. With its chevron shaping and stripes, Striation is an invitation to play with colour and texture. Designed to use two skeins of yarn, the options are endless; use a main colour and five mini skeins or make it scraptastic and use up all those delicious end balls or use colour changing yarn for a lovely result.
Mix up the texture and use a kidsilk or “fluff” yarn in place of one colour. Equally dramatic results can also be enjoyed by simply using two gorgeous skeins of yarn. Striation Scarf is knit tip to tip, with shaping to create interest to this garter stitch project. You’ll find the resulting scarf easy to wear and style. It’s sure to become a wardrobe favourite.
