Eye of the Storm
Curious about the technique for creating this scarf? Check out the video tutorial and a photo tutorial at my blog.
This triple-layered scarf has been swirling in my head for the better part of a year. It started as an “I wonder if I can …” kind of question. In this case, the question was this: “I wonder if I can knit something with three different layers, all at the same time, without seams or any other tricks?” Could it be done? Yes!
Each layer in Eye of the Storm has the same lace edging. The layers are three different widths, revealing the lace on each layer. The unusual construction takes advantage of the long color repeats in Zauberwolle: because the layers are worked simultaneously, the color changes line up perfectly.
You will need TWO circular needles in the same size for this project. Shorter cables (16” to 36”) work better than longer ones. It is possible to convert this project to DPNs -- one test knitter did so -- but the pattern is written with circs in mind.
