This scarf is my own invention – when I saw the small skeins of Koigu KPM/KPPPM needlepoint yarn at Purl Soho (only 11 yards!) I had to find a way to use the entire spectrum.
Here’s the scoop:
Using US 4 needles, C/O 35 sts w/ MC (I used white – color #0000 – as my MC)
Knit in mistake rib (K2 P2 to last 3 sts, K2 P1) every row
After two rows in MC, change to your first CC – after two rows of CC, change back to MC – after two rows of MC, change back to CC – and so on
After you’ve used up all of your CCs, mistake rib two rows of MC and then bind off in pattern.
My spectrum was pink, mauve, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red. It was a little difficult to get the perfect colors when choosing them over the Internet (Purl Soho has over 125 colors!), but I like how they came out – here are the exact Koigu colors I used, in order:
