|Snapshot of color|
I knit mine using Kudo by Plymouth Yarn. I used color 55 which I would describe as a blue-purple-red leaning rainbow. The yarn is a 55% cotton, 50% rayon, & 5% silk blend. I enjoyed working with this yarn for both the fiber content and the color. I haven't knit something with such a variation in color in a long time so I had forgotten how much fun it is and how it can really pick up your mood. I also happen to think that it makes a really lovely potato chip scarf with all the color changes.
I love this project for beginner knitters as it makes a scarf that looks harder than it actually is to knit. Plus you are going knitting a small number of stitches at time, making it really dynamic and never boring. Oh and I love that it only uses the knit stitch. It just really shows off that with a little bit of knitting knowledge, you can make a complicated looking scarf. I followed the pattern given here by Barbara Aguiar using size US 8 (5.0 mm) straight knitting needles. You can find my project here: Kate's Potato Chip scarf. The scarf currently resides at Park Avenue Yarns as a sample for the Knit 1 class.
