    Hi! I’d like to work this scarf, but there’s something not very clear to me: how many rows do I have to work for each color? In the instructions there’s written “until you have enough yarn” but it’s not enough to understand :).
    Can you help me?
    Thank you so much

      Hello Francesca,

      You work each color until you run out of yarn. Each color is a separate section.

      I hope this helps!

        Hi Annie,
        First of all, thank you for your answer, my question was to get an idea of the proportions between colours.
        I’m still an amateur, I need to know how many rows to work.
