Can We Talk About this Teal/Silver Colorway!?
Seriously. Ohmygosh. I’ll be honest with you. When I was picking colors for my 2018 Scarfie pattern collection, I grabbed this Teal/Silver with luke warm feelings about it. In fact I almost changed my mind about it several times. But I’m SO GLAD I didn’t. After seeing it worked up - well - let’s just say I’m in love.
I played with a C2C Infinity Scarf pattern earlier this fall and I loved the diagonal color gradient it created. I knew when I made the Eventide Infinity Scarf that I would also want to try a similar technique with Scarfie yarn. I love the diagonal ombre effect of using C2C in this Glacial Cowl, but to do the yarn justice in all it’s squishy glory, I made a jumbo version of the classic C2C stitch to really accentuate how pillow-y this yarn can be.
Truthfully, I had every intention of making a video tutorial for this scarf, but I simply ran out of time. If you would like a video tutorial for the over-sized C2C technique let me know and I will certainly work on it!
