Several months ago I attempted hand dying for the first time. Remember this? I was so happy with the way the way the yarn came out and began scouring Ravelry for the perfect pattern. After a bit of searching I finally found the "Column of Leaves Scarf" by Brooke Nelson; it was perfect! The yarn is a DK weight SW wool that was knit with size US 6 (4mm) needles. This pattern is awesome! It's easy to memorize and works up beautifully. I would definitely recommend it for a first time lace knitter.
I casted on with the rust and after finishing half of the yarn, switched to the autumnal variegated before finishing up with the remaining rust color. The finished length was approximately 64"
