Teleidoscope Scarf

I’ve always been attracted to knitting patterns that resemble hand weaving, so when, while browsing casually among the zillions of free patterns on the net, was drawn to this beautiful scarf. According to Wikipedia, “a teleidoscope is a kind of kaleidoscope, with a lens and an open view, so it can be used to form kaleidoscopic patterns from objects outside the instrument, rather than from items installed as part of it.”

This great digital image, also from Wikipedia, brilliantly exemplifies the teleidoscopic effect.

To get back to the pattern, it was published by KnitPicks over at their site. The suggested yarn is Merino Style Yarn, Swish DK Yarn  Elegance Yarn (DK weight),  615 yards, and a 40 inch circular needle, size 9 (US). I’m off to order some yummy yarn now. Hope you enjoy this pattern, as well as the design in motion above. Here’s the pattern.
