Hap's Pinwheel Scarf is the winner of the Tahki Cotton Classic Colorplay Challenge in the knitting category. It was designed by Kristin Rowse.

About the Designer: Kristin Rowse 

Like many avid knitters, I live by the motto "There can never be too much yarn in my stash!" I learned to knit from my grandmother at age six and never quit. My creations have always been works of true love for family and friends.  A recent lay-off has provided the motivation to explore a "career" change. So today, as a single mom of an active three year old, I am endeavoring to turn my beloved hobby into a living designing/producing knitwear for children and accessories for women.

Many thanks to all those who voted during the Colorplay Challenge! I couldn't have done it without you! Special thanks to my family, my step-dad's coworkers, and the Temple Street Knitting Girls for all the support!

Happy knitting!

I need help with the chart for the pinwheel scarf....I simply cannot see the colors clearly.  Is there a way to darken the colors so that they stand out?  I believe I can make the chart larger but its hard to identify the colors.  Any suggestions would be welcome.  I want to give this scarf as a Christmas gift.  Thanks

"There can never be too much yarn in my stash!" gave me quite a chuckle as I look around my house and find yarn (and lots of it) in every room except the bathrooms and kitchen (so far anyway).  Can any of us yarn addicts truly pass up a good sale or a terrific new color or texture?  Thus, the huge stash!  Best of luck in following your dream of designing/producting knitwear.  Love your pinwheel scarf!

P.S.  Color X should be used for the back as well.

You are correct. This should state 48 stitches in color X (Linen White).

Thanks for the catch!!!

If I am reading these instructions correctly, there is a mistake in the first part of the instructions.  It says to cast on 48 stitches in color A.  Color A is Red.  According to the picture you mean to do it in color X, the Linen white color.  Is this nor correct.
