For the love of stripes

The Ma Belle Amie scarf pattern is perfect for a stripe lover like me. The color changes cause each stripe to blend into the next. I found myself getting so excited to add next color. Even though I had my colors picked out in advance, I couldn't wait to see them stitched up.

The yarn is a wool-silk blend that is very soft and squishy with excellent stitch definition. It's called Gloss by Knit Picks and it comes in about twenty four different colors. I used Tranquil, Aegean, Hawk and Honey for this project.

The finished length of this infinity scarf is long enough to wrap twice around my neck, which is perfect. The edges are finished nicely and it gently curls under.

I'm inspired to work more with stripes, maybe another scarf with shorter sections of color changes. Or maybe just different colors. Can anyone recommend another fun striped knitting pattern?

  1. did you ever figure out if you were working your knits or purls through the back loop? it just really looks like you are twisting your stitches. see how different the texture of your scarf is from the pattern's sample photo? i'm genuinely trying to help.

  2. Looks great- I'm working on the same pattern - I'm into my 3rd section. You can see it here on my blog

  3. This is beautiful! I'm going to do the striped afghan after I finish up a few other projects. And I made log cabin blocks that need to be sashed together using 12 different skeins of Noro self-striping yarn. That was a really fun project.

  4. Pretty! I love the stripes and the colours you chose are gorgeous!

  5. Ooh, I like your scarf. I found your site accidentally via someone's site. I love your work.
