Mixed Candies – A simple dry chain in beautiful colors

Mixed sweets is one of 3 scarves I’ve made that are inspired by my love of sweets.

This is a scarf that lies flat on the chest so it can be worn under a jacket. It is knitted oblong and then stitches are picked up on one side to create an angle.

It is knitted on size 6 needles in Merino Ex. Fine, as it is a wonderfully soft, delicious and warm yarn that is also easy to knit evenly.

For this scarf, I was inspired by a mixed bag of sweets I saw. Strong brown sweets with extra strong blue sweets in them, just my favorites. So maybe it should have been called Stine’s favorites instead 😉

Merino Ex. fine is a lovely merino yarn from Drops, which comes in a myriad of beautiful colors, it’s spun a little differently, but it knits so wonderfully evenly and it’s a bit stretchy, which I think is great when making scarves.

Let yourself be inspired and create your very own scarf, maybe you have other candy favorites or maybe it should be colors that match your wardrobe, there are no limits when we play with colors. And the great thing about knitting at home is that we can do exactly what we want, when we want and scarves are great to experiment with, because it’s not so important if the goals are achieved in the end
