This pretty scarf was made with the Aurora Yarn which is a roving style yarn that combines many hues in each skein to make blended stripes. The pattern is a good way to learn how to knit a bias scarf. When worn the scarf’s stripes show diagonally.
The pattern available here is designed for a chunky weight yarn. This project goes pretty fast and should take about a weekend to complete.
