You can follow the pattern given here by using the suggested yarns, or you can substitute yarns from your own collection.

For this project, you need these materials and vital statistics:

  • Measurements: 7 inches x 54 inches

  • Yarn: Classic Elite Montera (50% llama/50% wool); 127 yards per 100 grams

  • Color A: 3321 Sage; 1 skein

  • Color B: 3853 Red; 1 skein

  • Color C: 3881 Green; 1 skein

  • Color E: 3898 Gold; 1 skein

  • Needles: One pair of size US 10 (6 mm) needles

  • Gauge: 4 stitches and 5 to 6 rows per 1 inch

Most of the color changes for this scarf occur when the RS is facing. Be on the alert, however, because some of the changes begin with the WS facing:
