So I had leftover superwash 100% wool, same yarn, in 2 vastly different colours. No way these two would look nice together, much less look EXCELLENT together, but me, I have rarely conformed to traditional (or any) rules, especially in knitting, so here it is.
Yarn: 2 balls of each of two colours Walmart Easy Knit 100 % mercerized wool. Colours lime and stone. One partial ball of black (worsted weight from stash) You could use any number of colours of left over yarn, separated by one constant colour (like the black), good de-stashing project!
Needles: 5.0 mm
Gauge: 28 sts in rib pattern = 4 inches.
With 5.0 mm needles, and lime, cast on 36 sts.
* Work in K1, P1 ribbing for 4 inches. Break off lime yarn (leave about 5 inches to darn in later)
Attach black and work ONE row in rib. Break off and attach stone colour.
Knit 4 inches of stone, and switch again to black for ONE row, then repeat from *
Continue alternating lime and stone, separating with one row of black, until desired length (mine is 6 feet long). End with a lime block and cast off in lime. (symmetry makes me happy).
Ta da! looks great with bright sweaters, and looks great with khaki and brown coats. Such a talented scarf.
