Making a Scarf with Stripe Pattern


We have seen this neon multi color yarn in the past.

A close up of the multi color yarn seems to be random...

... when the scarf is done, the stripes are neatly shown.    

Normally when making a stripe pattern scarf, the knitter has to change yarn every so often, there would be ends left to be tugged in.   Tugging in ends is something most knitters would like to avoid as it's additional work plus that sometimes the area would be a little thicker than normal.    By putting in different color wool during spinning, the multi color yarn will automatically make stripes in the scarf without having to change yarn during knitting thus no need to tug in the ends.
