Sampler Scarf

At the beginning of last August the more devoted of my readers might remember that I used Deb Menz’s multicolour combing techniques to make some red-based rovings from some odds and ends.

At the time I was disappointed by the way the grey looked in the finished yarns so I put them away.

Well, I finally knit them up and whilst I prefer the rovings without grey, the grey does give a really attractive and interesting effect. But it was REALLY ugly as yarn. Go figure.

Here’s the finished “sampler” scarf that I knit. It’s a simple K3, P3 rib and the yarns are an 8 ply weight (DK) single throughout.

Experimental Scarf
I made lots of different red rovings using the techniques in Deb Menz’s book “Color in Spinning” and made the samples into this scarf

And here are the 8 individual rovings as they knit up. I’ve stretched the rib out so you can see the full width of the knitting.
