I just finished mine this week. What a wondermous Valentine’s Day present to myself
Yes, she is huge. I invested approximately thirty hours on this scarf. Those straight rows seem to go on forver. My needles were smoking I was working so fast and I ended up working on it over the course of a week.
Here’s a close-up of the stitches.
And the action shot.
Even with the dropped stitch ladders, it’s very warm. Plus, the ways you can wear it make it very versatile. I’ve actually draped it over my head and wrapped the ends around my neck, worn it as a scarf and as a shawl. I used Caron’s Simply Soft in Watermelon from my stash. I used around 2 1/4 skeins for this project. I’m now using the left over to make matching “Fetching” hands warmers from Knitty.
