Weather Scarf- a year long project

Found this beauty via Max’s World who got it from Honey Nutbrowns

The idea is to knit a row each day which represents the maximum temperature in your area.
Its totally customizable since you assign the colours yourself and the scarf will look different for everyone who knits it.
Its such a wonderfully creative idea that I had to try it.

Here is my colour chart


Below 0 – Pale Blue
1-5 – Grey
6-10 – Bright Blue
11-15 Yellow
16-20 – Green
21-25 – Orange
26-30 – Pink
31+ – Red

I have decided to do two rows each day in knit 2, purl 2 rib.
Plus a row of rainbow yarn when it rains.
And as we’re already into January I looked up the maximum temperatures for the last 10 days.
Here is the scarf so far…

      I know! Its already really interesting seeing how the colours have changed with the weather.
