Water Lily Scarf



Noro Catherine Wheel Scarf by Michelle Mooney.
Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM).
Inspired by Moonstitches Rhubarb Scarf.
Colour palette inspired by Monet.

I wish it had been a bit denser but I did not have enough yarn to make it as long as I had hoped and so it had to have the bejeezus stretched out of it, when I blocked it.

NB:
Buy more yarn… at least two skeins of each colour next time.
On final row (i.e., the ruffled edge), instead of 1sc, 3ch, 1sc in each of the previous rows dc’s, do this: 1sc, 3ch, 1sc, slip 1 in next dc, repeat. This creates a flatter ruffle but I like it more than the busier, original ruffle.

I would recommend buying two skeins of each colour. I wished that my scarf had been longer.
