westknits Spectra

Spectra is a simple lightweight scarf featuring two fingering weight yarns. Short row shaping creates a dramatically curved edge that coils and playfully drapes. Basic intarsia technique entwines two strands of yarn, creating seamless wedges that resemble a rainbow or color wheel. You won’t want to stop knitting as the colors unfold!

    Comments about westknits Spectra:

    I love my spectra scarf and got lots of compliments on it at Vogue Knitting Live in NYC. It was so much fun to make. Learning the short rows was a small challenge at first but then I got used to it and it was just fun to watch the variegated yarn change with each wedge--I didn't want to stop knitting it! As I said above, I think it is more decorative than it is warm, but it is wool, so there is warmth when you wear it.
