The Gradient Scarf takes advantage of the gradual color changes in one skein of Red Heart It’s a Wrap Rainbow yarn or another sport weight gradient yarn with at least 600 yards per skein. Certain rows are worked from the outside of the skein and others from the inside of the skein. In the sample the yarn from the outside of the skein makes the more solid ripples that are darker in color. The lacey ripples are formed by using yarn from the inside of the skein.
