A new scarf (Tutorial)

I have knitted a lot of scarfs in my life for my husband and the children and they keep loosing them! :(
Ok, here a new one again, but I like mking this one,
I can use up left overs , and didn't need to go to the store to buy new wool.
I wanted to try a different pattern than usual and it turned out OK.It has a great effect.
It is very simple,

Here is the pattern:

choose different ossorted colours, take 2 or 4 colours that you are going to repeat more frequently to ake the colours come together.
Start in one colour :knit 1,one purl, knit 1,one purl, knit 1,one purl,.....
take another colour: Knit 2, purl 2,  Knit 2, purl 2, Knit 2, purl 2,.........
another colour: knit 3, purl 3, knit 3, purl 3, knit 3, purl 3, knit 3, purl 3,.......
again change colour: Knit 2, purl 2,  Knit 2, purl 2, Knit 2, purl 2,.........
other colour :knit 1,one purl, knit 1,one purl, knit 1,one purl,.....
and the again and again, never more than 3 stiches knit and purl,....
I have worked with wool, but I added some fine stripes of really fluffy mohair in between to give something extra in the design.
Those stripes I just knitted in the same stich, because you don't see the stitches anyway.
You can play with this pattern, it is really fun,
You can make stripes fatter or thinner, as you choose.



Use your imagination.

(I did my best to write this in English, but it will be full of mistakes, so please comment me as much as you like, so I can correct them)I like that, so I can learn.

Have fun!
