Scarves for gifting

 striped scarves 1

Yarn leftover from my splurge at Sock Summit this summer . . . I had enough for two scarves, one wider, with each of three colors equally sized, and shorter (you can tie it in a knot at your neck), and one narrower, with differing widths of colors, but long enough to pull through its own loop.

The shorter scarf is c/o 171 sts, the longer scarf is c/o 240 sts – I knit the entire thing in garter stitch.  Long rows to knit, but I like how the stripes run lengthwise.

The yarn is Anzula Cricket – it’s recommended for US 5s, so I knit double-stranded on US 10s on a 47″ circular needle.  Between the double-stranded yarn, the garter stitch, and the composition of the yarn (80% superwash merino, 10% nylon, and 10% cashmere), the end result is very springy, squishy, and toasty warm.  The colors are Charcoal, Cornflower, and Mulberry.
