A complicated two color scarf combining stranded knitting, reverse stranding and corrugated ribbing in a largely successful attempt to get a narrow piece of stranded knitting to lie flat.
The combination of textures, stripes and motifs looks a bit like Turkish and Asian flatwoven carpets.
The sample was knit on 2.75mm/US2 needles with 2 half sets of ColorShift Yarn (currently unavailable - see help page):
MC Cobalt Blue to Seaforest Green Colorbridge 320yds/290m
CC Pale Lavender Gradation 480yds/440m (yardage used approx. 320yds/290m)
Gauge: approximately 28sts and 26 rows = 4 inches in stranded pattern
Dimensions after blocking: 58in/148cm long x 8.5in/21cm
The pattern evolved as I knit the sample - I started knitting at the green end with diagonals of corrugated ribbing separating the bands of circular flower motifs. Diagonals of reverse stranding were introduced about a third of the way along - the blue end of the scarf shows the final version of the pattern.
The scarf can be knit using just the chart for this final version.
The pdf also contains a chart for the green end of the scarf and a transition chart - if you want to knit the scarf exactly as shown here.
Charted pattern with complex charts and short written instructions.
