Walking Tour Scarf
The Walking Tour Scarf is a lovely riot of color and traditional Fair Isle patterns inspired by images of native Shetland flowers: 36 shades of Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift yarn, to be exact. But don't panic: in true Fair Isle style only two colors are used in any one round.
The scarf is knit in the round as a long tube so it will keep you warm against the harshest conditions. The geometric patterns make it suitable for a beginner, but the expert color combinations make it interesting for the most advanced knitter as well.
This pattern offers wide scope for experimentation: use your stash, try a subdued natural-color version, replace some of the stranded areas with plain stockinette.... knitter's choice. Yarn quantities are given in yards to make substitutions easier.
Not every color requires a full ball of yarn--see below for details.
The Walking Tour Scarf starts with a simple offset corrugated hem--the rest is straightforward!
