Awhile back, I picked up some Chroma Worsted from KnitPicks in the colorway Mix Tape. Because how could I not, right? Especially KnitPicks said it was being discontinued? That’s right. I needed to rescue two skeins immediately, rehome them in a nice, loving yarn stash.
As I was moving, I needed a mindless project to keep my hands busy and decided it was time to figure out what the Mix Tape yarn wanted to be. I must have started and pulled out a half dozen patterns before I gave up and improvised. I finished it two days ago, and I love it, so I’m calling it my first successful improvisation.
Look. Look at this beautifully awesome thing that I did.
Stuff You Need:
- Size 10 1/2 knitting needles
- 2 balls of KnitPicks Chroma Worsted or some other worsted weight yarn with long color changing gradients (396 yards)
- A Battlestar Galactica marathon streaming on Netflix (optional)
- Cast on 33 (or other odd number).
- Seed stitch across every row (K1, P1, end row with K1).
- Alternate between each ball every four rows to create 97 stripes.
- Use the leftover yarn for fringe.
- Block by draping over a clothes hanger to get some extra length out of it.
Random mindless scarf of awesomeness, I hereby dub thee “Mixed Seeds”.
To all 3 of you out there reading this, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
