Stripey Tube Scarf

Our nuts-for-stripes Stripey Tube Scarf can go in so many directions… Young and fun, bold and dashing, subtle and sophisticated. But the knitting itself is straightforward. You just knit!

But lest you bore easily, what keeps things interesting here is the alternating rounds of color. As one skein ends and another begins, colors shift, new relationships form, and surprises happen. This is a scarf that compels you to the next skein and right to the end!

Nice and long, but more importantly doubly thick, the Stripey Tube Scarf is exponentially warmer than its single thickness friends. This scarf also resolves the age-old problem of stockinette scarves curling into tubes by working the conundrum into the concept!

We used our wonderfully cozy Super Soft Merino Bundles to knit up our two distinctly different Stripey Tube Scarves. From Soft Black to Heirloom White and exploring all the territory in between, this version above and below, uses the graphic Sketchbook palette.

And for the version below, we used the rich and colorful Super Soft Merino Bundle in Dahlia Garden for a whole different look. There are six Bundles to choose from, or customize your own with seven skeins of Super Soft Merino. Whatever colors you choose, this fabulous winter warmer is a ton of fun!
