Rainbow Dash Scarf Is Up!

Well, everypony, the pattern is up: Rainbow Dash's lightning-bolt keyhole scarf! This pattern is now 100% Rainbow Dash approved and 20% cooler for it. As you can see, the Bernat Mosaic yarn made a beautiful striping effect in the finished scarf, spanning the entire spectrum of colors in one short piece. And since it only took 100 yards of worsted-weight yarn, this scarf would also make a great stashbuster. You could even use lots of solid-colored scraps to stripe your own rainbow! The garter-stitch construction would help to reconcile even the most contrasting variegateds. 

(As a side note: am I the only one who finds it hard to destash worsted-weight yarn or heavier, especially in small amounts? Seems like it's so difficult to find a fun and functional pattern for thick scraps.) 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pattern-- and Dash does too!

She decided to go nesting in the fallen-over trees in our
backyard for this photoshoot. We didn't argue with her.
