A yarn with a long color repeat makes blended vertical stripes when a scarf is knitted sideways, from end to end. This simple garter stitch scarf uses two colors of Aero for even more vatiation of color. The finished piece measures 8.5" wide and 70" long. It can be hand washed and dried flat. Berroco rates this design as easy.
At a glance, you might mistake Aero for a brushed mohair. It has that same fluffy volume and warmth but its main component is alpaca, which is mixed with nylon and wool. It has been dyed in a long color repeat, so the knitted fabric has wide bands of color that blend from one color into another. Light and lofty, Aero is a bulky weight yarn and is knit in this project at 3 stitches per inch in garter stitch.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 36" circular needle in US size 13 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- tapestry needle
