It is proof that it sometimes takes so little to make something that is just perfect.
The scarf is simply knit in classic garter stitch, but the combination of the stitch, the width and length of the scarf and this amazing self striping yarn in subtle shades of pastel blue, pink and gray just work together perfectly to make a piece that is absolutely wonderful.
The yarn is Rowan's Kidsilk Haze Stripe in the Precious colorway. I want it now. A lot of it.
