Anyway, the thing about this scarf is that it is another of my swatches. They usually ends up being about three meters long and in a lot of colors. Trying out patterns and colors is so much more fun when the experiment ends up in something to wear.
It was really a challenge putting colors together this way. Usually I knit in complementary colors and combine them. This time it was about getting the colors to float into each other using color tones that matches.

But I managed to find some that paired up great. And when I looked at the colors before started knitting I must say I was very sceptic.
Some of them were just totally "no way" colors to me. But they worked.
What a fun and satisfying project - and the thing is that I did not see how it would turn out before I was finished.
I used my intuition and have not had any plan on length or how long each color float should be.
To keep track of the order in the colors I made a color wheel with them at first. Then I put them into long plastic bags in that order. I just knitted my way through the skeins in the order I put them into the bag.
I am so happy about how this came out. I love it and I am glad I was patient enough to knit my way through the 30 colors.
