I am pretty happy with this scarf. I wore it today. *grin* Nice spring/fall weight. Not too heavy, but cozy.
I think it came out well. I am happy with my spinning. It is getting more consistent. I am also pretty thrilled that I was able to do a Navajo ply to keep the colors separate, but didn't overtwist it. So it has a nice feel to it. Soft and squishy. Definitely nice!
I picked the pattern because I wanted a pattern that should be easy yet feature the yarn really well. I found this pattern. It is an ideal fit.
The pattern allows for great customization. Yet it is only 2 row repeat (one of which is purl), so it is super simple & quick. It definitely shows off the striping of colors wonderfully.
It was a quick knit. It only took as long as it did because there were a lot of nights I didn't touch it at all while working on socks. It could have been done in a weekend easily.
Definitely happy with this piece.
