Shortly after finishing my first Fiesta Scarf (aka Forsa) I cast on for another version. I'm using some Lang Mille Colori that I got at A Stitch in Time when we had the Trash to Treasures sale last November. Four skeins.
I had tried other scarves using this yarn but didn't like the way the stripes looked. They were too wide and somehow made the colors look muddy and unrelated. I had decided to work the yarn in a longways scarf so the the stripes would generally not be more than one row wide. After seeing how well the Noro Kureyon worked in this pattern I cast on for another one. I'm calling it Grape Fiesta.
I used a provisional cast on this time. See the light blue row? I think the edges will look much better if the cast on and cast off are alike. Once I finish the second set of K2P2 ribbing and have bound off I will undo the provisional cast on and bind off again. I should know by the end of today.
We're still waiting for the rain. It's pretty overcast and gloomy so maybe it will happen after all.
