Knit Today Magazine - - Pocket Scarf -

The best thing about self-strip­ing yarns is they make it look like you’ve spent ages on a pro­ject, but ac­tu­ally the colour changes take place with no ef­fort at all on your part… So if you haven’t moved on to stripes yet, or you just want a sim­ple pro­ject you can work on while still hav­ing a chat or watch­ing TV, then this pro­ject is for you. Our gor­geous Noro scarf, cre­ated with beau­ti­ful, soft 100% wool yarn is a real in­vest­ment piece and one you’ll keep for years to come. Sim­ply cast on and knit your­self into stripy heaven!
