Rainbow City by A. Opie Designs | The love of color, and stripes paired with an obsessive sock yarn stash inspired Rainbow City (AKA...very small town in Alabama)! Madelinetosh sock yarn was used in the sample....clearly lots of leftovers of the bright colors. The good news is that Tosh Unicorn Tails, and The Fiber Seed, Seedlings are a great substitute. These mini skeins are perfect for projects that feature a pop of color.
When I proudly showed the finished scarf to my husband, he kindly and very seriously asked: "Do you know there is a hole in your scarf?" Me: "Why, yes,...yes I do!" It's a keyhole....just an option for those who don't want to tie a scarf. It gives the look of tying with out the bulk.
