Let your playful side run free this winter with the Paint Drip Scarf. Knit from scraps and leftovers from other worsted weight projects, you can create your own wonderful mess of color. The drip motif uses Stacked Stitches, an innovative method of increasing and decreasing, to create the colorwork. The reverse side has no strands, and the pattern includes a tutorial video showing how to weave in ends as you knit.
We hope you take advantage of the coloring pages included in the pattern to plan out your color scheme.
