Rainbow Neckerchief

This pattern is Eskimimi a/k/a Mimi Hill’s Simple City scarf. Simple it is, with miles of garter stitch. It’s a great pattern to work at times when distractions swirl. If you get bored, just keep that cool ruffle in mind to keep you going.

This is my first knit in Zauberball by Schoppel-Woole. A fun yarn. No knots. A bit thick and thin here and there, but nothing that proved very noticeable. One ball is enough. Before you start, rewind the ball into two balls of equal weight. I weighed mine on a digital postal scale to be sure. You alternate balls every two rows to achieve the striping.

It turned out, well, a tad gaudy. Is there such a thing as a “tad” gaudy?  OK.  It’s gaudy.  I don’t think I chose wisely on the colorway. But it looked so cool all rolled up in that ball. I should have known that with most variegated yarn less is more. It certainly kept me feeling cheerful while I knit it, though. Maybe it will have that same effect when I wear it.

My mannequin head thinks it’s cool she’s finally got a scarf that matches her stuffing.
