I was inspired by the Northern Lights to create a scarf that brings color into focus on a backdrop of a simple seed texture. The Aurora Scarf is a beginner level project that’s got enough color changing action to entrance even expert level knitters. Let your inner artist have a ball picking five colors of fingering weight yarn. You’ll use multiple strands as you knit to create a stunning ombré effect. Gorgeous for men or women, this accessory brings a modern pop of color to the wearer’s wardrobe.
The scarf is worked in one piece along the short edge.
Finished measurements: 7” x 65”
Yarn: 5 colors of fingering weight (CYCA #1) yarn in the following yardage amounts:

These yardage amounts allow for the yarn to be held triple strand.
