Landscapes Scarf Knitting Pattern- a classic, ribbed scarf knit using self-striping Lion Brand Landscapes yarn.
Landscapes self-striping creates beautiful, saturated bands. It’s acrylic, single plied roving yarn that has a satiny feel and a richly colored palette. The downside of this beautiful yarn is that it can be fussy to work with. It splits easily and it breaks if you pull too hard while unraveling stitches. I found that pairing the yarn with another type (for this pattern it is Lion Brand Basic Stitch) makes it a lot easier to work with. This doubled yarn technique maintains the beautiful color of the Landscape yarn while adding extra weight for winter accessories.
