What to do with that Kureyon that didn't stripe nicely? Make a Lite Brite scarf!
I learned this pattern from my friend Brenna MacCrimmon, who has made several. A friend of hers looked at it and said it reminded him of the old 70s toy "Lite Brite." I don't know the real name of the stitch. I decided to finish it off with something a little different, and New Stitch a Day came to the rescue with the Knotted Openwork Stitch. It took a few experiments to find a graceful way to do decreases on it. The scarf is rather wide so I decided not to make it as long as I'd normally make a scarf; one time folded around the neck will be plenty. The back side isn't bad, but not great, so folding it might be better anyway. I did lots of cutting and splicing to get the colors I wanted (and eliminate some I didn't), and decided to run a red row through it every 8th row to give it a little more structure.
