for anyone else who wonders what kind of yarn is suitable for the candy color scarf: with any type of yarn you can create a different effect.
i used micro bamboo schachenmayr nomotta: 50% viscose bamboo – 50% acrylic – 50 gr, 145 m – which is very soft – and a crochet hook size 3 mm.
the yarn looks like this (close up):
i first tested the pattern with catania mercerized cotton and although it looks very pretty it did not give the effect i wanted. it was not flexible and soft enough for a scarf. i am sure thick acrylic yarn also gives a nice look.
hope this helps!
