These colours make a good scarf, knitted in Brioche, for a Christmas present. Multi-colour brioche knitting is almost like shadow or illusion knitting, but the image isn't quite as dependent on viewing it from the right angle.
Yarn: Kauni Wool 8/2 Effektgarn in colours EMC and EC
Needles: 3.5 mm
Pattern: Geveldak Scarf by Nancy Marchant, from the excellent 'Knitting Brioche' book
Comments: the book is excellent, the pattern was easy to follow.
