Rainbow Scarves

Rainbow colors delights my heart, and they are also a symbol for Meher Baba, so – double the fun!

Both scarves are knitted sideways.

Scarf one is v easy. Knit sideways and cut the yarn at the end of each row, leaving long tails.

CO # of sts for the length you want, in red, and leave long tail.

Row 1: knot red & orange, living long tails of both. k orange.

Row 2: Knot orange and yellow, living long tails. Knit yellow.

Continue like this to full rainbow ( green, blue, purple, light blue).

If the scarf is too narrow for your liking, repeat your steps backward:

after the light blue knit a purple row, then blue, green, yellow, orange and finish with red.

Give the tails a nice ‘haircut’, or live them wild!
