This is the Paintbox Scarf. Once again using Kauni EQ (Spectrum) as the main colour interest and a solid neutral to frame each colour box. Each of the windows of colour are worked in reverse stocking stitch. The first row of the colour motif has to be worked in stocking stitch in order to avoid contrasting purl bumps, after this it is reverse stocking stitch for the remainder. Working reverse stocking stitch on both sides is easier than stocking stitch, once the yarns have moved to their respective sides of the fabric at the start of the block they remain there to work the stitches until the block ends. Contrast that with the constant need to keep moving the yarn between stitches in stocking stitch!
These areas are locked at the sides only, not top and bottom, they would not hold stuffing!
