Art Class - Mixed Fiber Scarf 1.0
Art class for knitters involves combining different colors, textures and stitches of yarns in a pleasing combination. Random striping can be difficult for some, (me, too!) so with this pattern I assigned a stitch to each yarn. I knit a varied stripe pattern in several yarns then repeated the pattern throughout the scarf. Each and every scarf can be original. The fun is in the knitting!

The Size:
Finished Measurements (w/o fringe):
Length 72" Width 8.5"

The Materials: (all by Berroco)
Borealis, 2 skeins, 5074
Lustra, 1 skein, 3172
Peruvia Quick, 1 skein, 9127
Sundae, 1 skein, 8737
US #11 needles

The Gauge:
3 sts/in (average after blocking)

The Definitions:
St St = stockinette stitch, knit on the RS, purl on the WS
Garter St = knit every row
2x2 Ribbing = *knit 2, purl 2* repeat
Moss Stitch = row 1 & row 2: *knit 1, purl 1* repeat
Row 3 & row 4: *purl 1, knit 1* repeat

My Rules:
Borealis is in St St.
Lustra is used double stranded in Garter St.
Sundae is in 2x2 Ribbing
Peruvia Quick is in Moss Stitch.

The Knitting:
Cast on 26 sts in Borealis. Knit in pattern as follows, leaving about six inch tail at each edge when changing yarn for fringe. Tails will be on both edges of scarf.
*Borealis 10 rows, Lustra 3 rows, Borealis 10 rows
Sundae 8 rows, Lustra 3 rows
Peruvia Quick 10 rows, Borealis 3 rows, Peruvia Quick 10 rows*
Repeat * to * until about 72" ending with Borealis. Bind off.
Each fringe has two strands. Twist these together until they start curling, tie a knot in the end and trim ends. Block. Save the extras for your next Art Class knit.
