How to create the Season 16 scarf

Since this scarf is essentially the original times two, I have used the same yarn
recommendations. If you want a truly authentic season 16 you can even find the subtle
variations of the duplicate half that I mentioned above. If you want to go one step further for
an authentic Shada version, you could also get a lighter gray and burgundy for each end,
finished off with short tassels of these two colors mixed with red. And don't forget the patches!

These colors are not all the same brand or fiber, but they work fine together, at least in my
experience. (you might have to adjust your knitting tension slightly for the different yarns
though.)

Red

        Best Choice: Cascade 220 Superwash (823) -- 3 skeins
        Choice 2: Nashua "Julia" (0178 - "Harvest Spice") -- 6 skeins

Purple

        Best Choice: Cascade 220 (9572) -- 1 skein
        Choice 2: Plymouth Galway (92) -- 1 skein
        Choice 3: Nashua "Julia" (4345 - "Coleus") -- 5 skeins

Gray

        Best Choice: Plymouth "Encore" (6001) -- 3 skeins
        Choice 2: Nashua "Julia" (0122 - "Steel Grey") -- 6 skeins

Beige

        Best Choice: Cascade 220 Wool (8622) -- 3 skeins
        Choice 2: Plymouth Galway (155) -- 3 skeins
        Choice 3: Nashua "Creative Focus Superwash" (10 - "Taupe") -- 3 skeins
        Choice 4: Cascade 220 Wool (1208) -- 3 skeins

Brown

        Best Choice: Rowan Pure Wool DK (16) -- 3 skeins
        Choice 2: Jamieson's Heather Aran (1190 - "Burnt Umber") -- 5 skeins
        Choice 3: Jojoland Baritone (525) -- 4 skeins
        Choice 4: Red Heart Soft (1882 - "Toast") -- 2 skeins

Yellow
       Best Choice: Universal Deluxe Worsted (12182 "Gold Spice") -- 1 skein
       Choice 2: Cascade 220 Wool (2415) -- 1 skein (better in conjunction with the Nashua
        beige)

Green

       Best Choice: Universal Deluxe Worsted (12181 "Bronze Brown") -- 4 skeins
       Choice 2: Jojoland Baritone (525) -- 7 skeins (If you want a more brownish green. Works
        better in conjunction with the Jamieson's Brown.)

If you decide to use different yarn, keep in mind that it should preferably be wool or a wool
blend and sport-worsted weight.

Specifications:

       Needles: This scarf should be knitted with US#4 to US#6 needles.
       Stitch: Garter stitch. Slip the last stitch as if to knit.
       Width: Varies! 11 inches wide for original half and 9 inches on the duplicate half. The
        number of stitches to achieve this width can vary and depends on the thickness of the
        yarn and the size of the needles.
       Length: This was the longest scarf Tom wore besides the season 18, and made a knee-
        sized loop while touching the ground on either side.
       Tassels: The tassels should consist of all seven colors. They should be placed very close
        together and should be about 4 inches long when finished.
