Spiral Scarf


This simple Fairisle scarf is an ideal introduction to Fairisle knitting, because it is knitted in the round (no purling!) and it is based on a 3-stitch repeat so you never have to ‘catch’ the yarn not in use.

I used 4 shades of Kidsilk Haze but any DK in 2 shades will also work.  The Kidsilk Haze is held double and it is colourwashed. 

It is also beaded and this is fully explained.

I rate this as easy to moderate.
