This is a detail of the Bubbles Scarf. It is a negative/positive design. The other side is the exact opposite motif. When the yarns cross from one layer the the other they connect the fabrics at the sides of the motif. In order to emphasize the bubble, I have stuffed it with batting or fleece before completing the motif. Technically the top and bottom of the shapes are open, but as they are narrow and the stuffing is ‘sticky’ it stays in place. I used a long colour gradation yarn, Kauni, to achieve all the differently coloured bubbles!
