While the sales are on I decided to pick up a few balls of 4 Seasons Marvel 12 ply yarn to give it a whirl.
The colour range in the shop I visited was limited in comparison to the other weights of Marvel yarn but I chose this mustard yellow colour to make an acrylic scarf.
I normally use wool and natural fibres for winter scarves but I want to experiment with yarns that can be used by people who have allergies or reactions to wool.
The weight of the 12 ply doesn’t feel as thick as a wool 12 ply, and I want to make a chunky scarf, so I’m knitting this scarf in a basic rib pattern with two yarns at a time and 9mm straight needles.
So far so good!
Edit on 2 August 2014:
And here’s the finished scarf coming in at 185cm!
Note: 4 Seasons used to be called Moda Vera
