malabrigo linen stitch scarf: smitten

There are basically only two colors in this scarf, with some variation: red and grey. The general rule of thumb for the colors is two alternate the two colors, not letting all the bright reds or dark greys end up together too often. Here's how we did it:

Caston A: Ravelry Red (solid bright red)

Caston B: Polar Morn (medium grey)

Row 1: Intenso (red/fuschia/orange)

Row 2: SFO Sky (variegated greys)

Row 3: Colorinche (red/light blue)

Row 4: Box F (variegated red/purple/green/black)

Row 5: Pearl  (light grey)

Row 6: Vermilion (bright red)

Row 7: Stonechat (burgundy)

Row 8: Natural

Row 9: Little Lovely (red/pink)

Row 10: Garden Gate (dark blue-grey)

Row 11: Frost Grey (grey)

Row 12: Box P (variegated pink/purple/blue)

Repeat this same order twice more, or, as we did, mix it up. Enjoy!

malabrigo linen stitch scarf: chamomile

The color order for the Chamomile kit (neutrals) is a bit different than other colorways. Why? Because this kit features so many neutrals, the color order is not quite so critical, and several of the colors can be used interchangeably.
Caston A: peachy
Caston B: soft solid grey
Row 1: light warm grey
Row 2: moss green
Row 3: grey
Row 4: dark brown or dark grey
Row 5: pale green/grey
Row 6: pale yellow
Row 7: light aqua
Row 8: natural
Row 9: light grey/taupe
Row 10: gold
Row 11: variegated aqua/grey/gold
Row 12: khaki
After that repeat the sequence twice more, or vary at will.
