Striped Irish Hiking Scarf



The yarn I used for this scarf is Ashford Tekapo DK; although it is marketed as a double knit (8ply) yarn, it is thicker than most DK yarns and is more a worsted weight (10ply) yarn. The grey yarn was left over from the Mr Greenjeans cardigan I knitted last winter and as I had a couple of skeins of the pink and blue in my stash, as well, I thought that it would be a good idea to combine the three colours. The yarn is very soft and warm, so is ideal for a scarf which can be worn on cold winter days.

Quick and easy



Before I made these dishcloths, I did a search on Ravelry for some new patterns, but ended up using two of my old favourites instead. I am now working on a striped Irish Hiking Scarf, using up some yarn from my stash. I am using three colours, grey, pink and blue and they look really pretty together.
