Scout is an intricate, pattern-filled shawl inspired by the pieced-together aesthetic of vintage quilts. A dream project for colourwork lovers, Scout’s patchwork effect is achieved by mixing Fair Isle and intarsia knitting throughout. Knitted sideways from tip-to-tip, the easy-to-wear shape and size of the shawl is designed to display maximum detail as it drapes over the shoulders.
I have put together some suggested yarn kits for this gorgeous design using Kokon Fingering Weight Merino. Alternatively you can choose your own five colours from the gorgeous range of colours available in the Kokon 4ply/Fingering Weight Merino
To help achieve a similar colour-effect to the sample, use these guidelines when creating your own palette: C2 – choose a light neutral (e.g. white, cream, beige, grey, etc.) C1 and C5 – choose a lighter and darker tone in the same colour family (e.g. lighter pink for C1, and darker pink for C5). C3 and C4 – choose a lighter and darker tone in the same colour family that contrasts with C1 and C5 (e.g. lighter green for C3, and darker green for C4).
Use the schematic to further check how the colours will be paired together.
