This scarf, knit in two directions,allows much room for creativity. It can be made with one type of yarn, but is best for color or texture blocking. You can also try something I call comfort blocking - put a soft luxury yarn in places which touch your skin and less touch friendly but fabulous looking yarn on the ends. Shown in Habu Textiles Shosenshi Paper and Shalimar Yarns Breathless. Please note that instructions can be used as a recipe for any weight yarn or stitch gauge. Recommended yarn: Yarn A: 1 skein of Habu Textiles A-60 Shosenshi Paper, shown in color 116. Yarn B: 1 skein of Shalimar Yarns Breathless, shown in color primula. Gauge Shown: Yarn A: 37 stitches and 32 rows in a 4"x4" 1 x 1 ribbing square. Yarn B: 26 stitches and 36 rows in a 4"x4" stockinette square. Supplies: Size 4 needles (or appropriate to your yarn) Sewing needle Stitch marker Follow these rules for the best results: Make sure Yarn A is no heavier than Yarn B.

am a big fan of exploring new techniques and stitches, especially when there’s color involved.
