Finished Color Tipped Scarf!

Many moons ago, I saw Purl Soho’s Color Tipped Scarf.

I loved it!

Sat in my Ravelry queue for-everrrr.

It wasn’t until I saw the completed scarf made by Stephanie at Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons that I knew I had to make it (granted, it still took me a long time to cast on).

I finally cast on after I finished my felted project bag.

I used only stash yarn and I wanted it washable.

I used three colors of Vanna’s Choice yarn:

  • Grey Marble
  • Dusky Blue
  • Oatmeal

Although the oatmeal and grey marble are close, you can certainly tell I used two different colors.

I love that they are similar, but different.

I continued increasing until I had 40 stitches on my needle (if I were to do it again, I might make the width less…maybe 35 stitches instead).

I also chose not to do the  color switch as the pattern instructs.

I chose to break up the addition of the new color, I wasn’t a fan of the abrupt color change.

I love this look, but I really love the wrong side!

I used up almost the entire three skeins, just enough left over to make Miss ME a hat with the same colors.

Although I dropped one stitch and had trouble fixing that (you can see the spot in the first picture), I don’t mind (it is actually one of my better fixes-yet another reason to finally watch my Craftsy knitting classes).

I love this scarf and plan on wearing it a lot this winter!

Have a good week!

    I love your scarf! It looks like something doable for me, so I’ve put in my Favorites bundle on Ravelry. I also love the differently toned neutrals on the tips. It’s an unexpected, but interesting detail.

    I remember when Stefanie made that scarf and I loved it then and love it now! Why I haven’t cast one on is beyond me…too many WIP’s? LOL! Yours turned out great…I love how you striped it and the colors you chose!
