For the past couple of weeks I have been working on a Born Trippy by Beata Jezek of Hedgehog Fibres. I had been saving a gradient collection from Indigo Dragonfly I had purchased from Wolseley Wool last summer for the perfect knit just for me, and I decided early this month after a few month of knitting gifts for others it was time for a treat for myself. I have paired the gradient mini’s with a skein of fingering weight Alegria from Manos and it is knitting up into a lovely chevron scarf that will be perfect for chillier evenings in later summer and a wonderful accent to a light jacket come fall.
This scarf works perfectly with Hedgehog fibres, Cog yarns, and Manos Fino mini skeins. It calls for 4 mini fingering skeins and 1-100g fingering skein that complements or contrasts to your mini skeins, depending on your preference for your scarf. However, if you like so many of us save those left overs from past projects, it would also look wonderful in many combinations of smaller yardages of fingering weigth yarns. The pattern calls for 4-20g mini skeins, however the way the pattern is designed means that you may change colours as often as you like and would be able to combine many more colours into the scarf if you choose to do so, or coversely you would be able to choose two contrasting 100g fingering skeins and stripe them for the length of the scarf. The possibilities with this scarf are endless!
