This amazingly vibrant and fun scarf is beginner friendly, to boot! Using simple stitches and short-rows, use a self-shading yarn to get an effect similar to the scarves pictured.
From the designer: Fossil Fern is an intricate looking yet relatively easy to knit shawl made with two yarns. It is fully reversible. One side will highight Yarn A and the other will highlight Yarn B. Accordingly, you will need two contrasting yarns of the same weight: two solids, one solid or semi solid combined with a color gradient, or two color gradients that go well together as a pair but that are distinctive enough to make out the individual modules - all these combinations work well together.
The amount of yarn you need will of course depend on the tightness of your knitting and the weight of your yarn. The size will depend on the numer of modules you want to knit. Fossil Fern is composed of two parts - a waxing and a waning part. Simply knit the waxing part until you have reached half of the desired length and/or until you have used up to 50% of your yarn. Therefore, you can use any yarn weight and needles you like and knit any size from a large shawl to a small shawlette.
