I love the crazy color combos and the fun patterns of Missoni. I was determined that I could achieve the Missoni effect with crochet. My plan was to do this with a self-striping yarn, and then I wouldn't have a bunch of ends to weave in.
My friend at Alcidina Art Yarns made me some custom dyed yarn! She surprised me with these self-striping skeins. Boy did I feel privileged when these gorgeous treats appeared in my mailbox.
I tried to use the yarn as it was, perfectly measured and just alternating the two balls. But, I ended up liking a more randomly ordered stripe, instead of a consistent stripe. So that meant lots of cutting of my self-striping yarn and weaving in of those ends. Grrr.... AND...I added white, you have to have the white in there to break up all that color. BUT, I love LOVE my scarf! It is a cushy cashmere blend and is extra wide for more smooshy goodness.
