The ugliest scarf in the world:

I only wore the ugly scarf once. Ugh.
Recently however, I had tried something new with another impossible Noro colorway...one that also promised to turn out ugly: instead of casting on just 25-30 stitches, I cast on 216 stitches! And worked garter stitch until the two skeins were exhausted. It made the perfect scarf.
So as I frogged this blue-green-teal-black ugly scarf, I cast on 225 stitches with a US10 needle...and worked garter stitch until the 2.3 skeins were gone. I reserved some turquoise for the fringe.
While this scarf isn't the most beautiful specimen, it's at least wearable without getting sick. I do actually like it! :happydance: With fringe, it's 86" long. It's 4.5" wide. It has been soaked and blocked.
