Painter's Palette


Combine the different colours of a painter`s palette in a self-striping yarn and the possibilities are endless.

In the "Painter`s Palette" scarf, the coloured stripes work across the body of the scarf in straight rows, yet ruffle out into a gathered edging all the way around.

The use of short rows in the ruffled border creates a flirty, playful piece that can be converted into a shrug or worn casually as a shawl.
