    This long scarf is super easy to knit in garter stitch with stockinette stitch stripes. Choose a color fade for your main color and lots of color pops for the accent stripes. The sample uses 5 colors from light to dark with a variety of mini skeins and leftover bits of wool, mohair, angora, and cotton for the thin stripes. Play with color and make it your own!

    Color Notes
    Fade through your MC whenever you like while adding CC stripes randomly throughout the pattern. To get a color fade, start with your first MC until you are ready to stripe it with your second MC. Work 2 row stripes to fade your MCs together until you want to work the next MC on its own.

    The sample scarf faded through 5 MCs like this…

    SECTIONS 1-3

    SECTIONS 4-6
    MC1 striped with MC2 working 2 rows with each color.

    SECTIONS 7 & 8

    SECTIONS 9 & 10
    MC2 striped with MC3 working 2 rows with each color.

    SECTIONS 11 & 12

    SECTION 13
    MC3 striped with MC4 working 2 rows with each color.

    Continue repeating the last 4 rows of SECTION 13 using MC4 and then fade into the last MC5 shade until the scarf is the length you want.
