Thank you for answering ! Yes the dropped stitches are definitely going in the correct direction. Out of interest, my Aunts scarf was knitted in a much finer wool, more like an Aust. 4 to 5 ply in a crepe wool, which gave it a more lacy effect.
I love this one as well, do you happen to have the pattern, that you would be happy to share with me. I will wait in anticipation for an answer.
This is very close to the effect ! Excited.
