December 2: Gathering Rainbows

If you’ve flipped through the Sundance Catalog recently, I’m sure you didn’t miss this beautiful infinity scarf:

But why buy a scarf for $45 when you can make one yourself for $58 – reasoning only a knitter would understand.
Lots of knitters are wanting to make this scarf (myself included), so I selected the perfect yarns and figured out the pattern.

The choice of yarn was as essential to replicating this scarf as the stitch pattern. It requires a combination of a thick-n-thin multicolor yarn and a solid single-ply. We used Berroco’s Mojo and Mirasol’s Sulka. The scarf in the catalog is acrylic but ours is far more luxurious, blending silk, alpaca and wool.

We even have the yarn in colors very similar to the catalog scarf, although I gave it a go with alternate colors.
My present to you today is the pattern for this beautiful Rainbow Infinity Scarf. It works up quickly! You seriously can have this finished in time for gifting. In fact you can knit this faster than you can get one from the catalog – theirs is sold out until February.

    Yes that is a beautiful scarf and I would love the pattern. Acrylic is not as appealing as silk, alpaca and wool. Thank you for that.

    Now I know what to do with my discount from the gifts I bought for our angel family. The stash grows and grows. Really need to learn to knit as fast as Laura.
    Thanks for feeding my habit.
