It seems this scarf took forever, though I set it aside to knit for my new grandson and to knit Holiday Gifts.

The pattern is by Lucy Neatby..not a free pattern but one that is worth buying since you get directions for 2 versions of the scarf.

I used a set of gradient dyed yarns. Actually there are 8 different colors in the scarf.

The only stitch used in the entire pattern is the knit stitch. You must be able to do the cable cast on to make the picots that edge the scarf and you must be able to work short rows. So it is not difficult at all. It is a tedious pattern though so keeping track of rows is just about mandatory.

The rounded ends of the scarf are formed by knitting 4 "wedges" of 28 short rows. The "body" of the scarf is knit in wedges also, 11 rows to each wedge on each side of the scarf.

I did one in sequined yarn that came out fantastic. You'll get your money's worth from this pattern and whatever yarn you select..lots of hours of knitting enjoyment.

The yarn is not one that's available at retail locations. It's hand spun and hand dyed. There is a shop on Etsy that sells gradiant dyed yarn packs though. I used about 550 yards of two ply merino.
