Featured Scarf in Rowan Knitting and Crochet Magazine – 50

My continuous looped scarf featured in this seasons Rowan Magazine. The scarf was knitted for the RCA ‘Wool Week’ competition.
The keyword for the brief was freedom and the knitwear piece had to link to the 50th anniversary of London’s ‘Swinging sixties’ Carnaby Street.Images from Rowan Magazine 50.

This scarf is made from British wool and was inspired by 1960’s optical art patterns and psychedelic colours.
