The Design

Here is what Paola writes about her design: 

Rhythmical Lines is an infinity scarf featuring a super simple slip-stitch pattern inspired by a Waclaw Szpakowski drawing.

Szpakowski was a polish architect and engineer known for his sketches esploring the dynamical possibilities of simple lines. Here the original white background is replaced with a variegated-multicolored one and this variation gives a completely different flavor to the piece.

The scarf is worked to the desired length and then grafted.

Broken lines are worked on a colorful background, forming a pattern that can be seen as an argile-type design or as a succession of concentric rectangles or - of course - as a series of rhythmical lines.

The contrasting lines are thinner than the background because they are worked in garter stitch, while the background is worked in stockinette.

Knitting this scarf is very easy and fun, and the result is stunning! 

The Yarn and Colorways

We duplicate here the colors that Paola used to knit her original scarf.

The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Alegrìa (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Polyamide; 445 yards 420 meters/100 gr).  For the MC in her original she used the colorway called Carnaval.  Carnaval is a happy fiesta of colors including fuchsia, purple, orange, blue, and some hues in between. 

For the Contrast Color (CC) she used a different yarn, in a black.

We usually try to stay with the same Alegria yarn and bring in that Black as well to act as the striking contrast color. Unfortunately this time there were very limited quantities of Alegria in Black. For the remaining kits we are substituting Tosh Mo Light, from Madeline Tosh, made up of 80% superwash merino/ 20% kid mohair, in a black as well.  It feels wonderful, really and truly.  Soft and delicious.  Each skein has 420 yards (384m) per skein.

You will end up with more yarn than you need to make one (actually, you might even be able to stretch this into two infinity scarves).  


Each kit will give you one skein in Carnaval and one in Black.
