This simple scarf is inspired by a novel: Divergent by Veronica Roth. The following basic knitting skills are assumed: knit, purl, cast on, cast off, and change colors at beginning of row. The tubular scarf also has a whip-stitched seam and knotted fringe.

Tutorials on knitting fundamentals can be found at or Your local library and most craft stores will also have “learn to knit” books if you don’t have a neighborhood knitter handy.

Factionless: a Tubular Striped Scarf

I looked to Divergent for color inspiration. Each of the five factions in the novel wears distinct clothing colors: gray for Abnegation, blue for Erudite, black and white for Candor, red and yellow for Amity, and black for Dauntless. I wanted to design a “faction unity scarf” with two constraints: Use all the faction colors and make sure each color touches every other color at least once.
