This scarf is a continuation of rainbow poem shawls. The name I call it for short is Karma. It has 7 squares, symbolising our journey towards God:
- Starting with all colors, as I believe we have everything in us from birth. The first step has more red, to symbolise more earthiness, attachments, me mine & I. And very little sky blue, which symbolises God.
- The second step has more orange, and no red, To symbolise loosing the heavy sanskaras/karma, and moving more towards light.
- The last step is all sky blue and is knitted in only one direction: UPWARD! There is no confusion/sidesteping.
It took me 5 tries to get the look that gives what I mean. This is the last and finished one:
Knitwise: start with all yarns, metered/modular knitting, and loose a yarn/color each step.
If you are interested in the pattern (knit or crochet ) let me know.
Here is the front and back side:
