FO: Scarf with Striped Border from Weldon’s Vol 5

I’ve got a small FO to share, details on the knitting HERE.


This easy scarf was knit with Ashland Bay Merino/Tencel 70/30, spun to a 2-ply sport/DK weight, 16wpi, about 400yds and 3.5oz, on a Louet Victoria.

I used the smallest whorl on the regular flyer at 12:1, and low to medium tension to spin the singles with a fairly high twist. It's a standard 2-ply, with a bit lower twist than the singles for a soft drapey yarn.
