This colorful scarf was a special request from my husband last fall. Somehow I managed to surprise him with it for Christmas, even though I actually worked on it right in front of him on a couple of occasions. Too funny.

Have you noticed that some of the more retro color combos are coming back in style. The combos are so far outside my normal comfort zone but I love them. The only thing separating this scarf from pure 70s bliss is a dark brown color! (If you add a dark brown PLEASE be sure to share a pic with me.)

The idea for this multicolored scarf is based on the old Doctor Who Scarf. If you are looking for a more authentic pattern for a Doctor Who Scarf, you have to check out the website Doctor Who Scarf. (Yes, there is an entire website dedicated to the many variations on the scarf!)

Yarn Used for the Multicolored Crochet Scarf

Almost all the yarn used for the scarf is heathered, which still gives bold colors, but the heathered varieties just have more depth. I had to use two of my favorite yarn lines, Lion Brand Heartland and Premier Yarn Everyday to get just the right heathered colors which worked perfectly. The two types of yarn are very similar and work well together.

They are both on the lighter side of #4 Medium Weight yarn so if you use something like Vanna’s choice, which is thicker you may end up with a larger scarf. (I don’t think anyone will complain!)

The stitches of the colorful scarf are basic crochet moss stitches, however, you’ll want to pay attention to the instructions even if you are familiar with the moss stitch. The instructions for this moss stitch are a bit different but they give a super smooth edge. Check out the moss stitch crochet tutorial for step-by-step photos and instructions.
