What was your inspiration?
The scarf is named "troika" for the method of using three different yarns in alternating sequence. It's great for odd balls or using small amounts of high-end yarns together with some more economical yarns, or even stash yarns you already have on hand.
What are you most proud of?
This scarf design features look-alike cast-on and bound-off edges.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
A mixture of weights is fine. For lots of color and textural interaction, choose your yarns in a harmonious color scheme, each in a different texture. For example nubby or glitzy (textured loop), shiny and smooth (ribbon, viscose, or chenille), and fuzzy (mohair or fake fur). Check your yarn stash or shop odd-ball sales. Remember that finer yarns can be held together and used as one.
