Scarf, shawl, wrap thingy

I just completed this project for a good friend of mine who wanted something more than a scarf, but not so much as a shawl or wrap. After much searching I finally found a pattern on ralvery for the project you see completed here. I like it however, if I were to do it again I would increase the width. The patter was for a small woman I think, and it didn't stretch as much as I hoped it would during blocking. It was made with lion brad bulky yarn. A wool blend. I blame the lack of stretching due to the blend.

Your "wrap thingy" looks GREAT! I've used that yarn before and it's a bear to crochet with! It is crazy soft, however.

Very nice work. If you have

Very nice work. If you have the time, you could easily widen it by knitting another panel or two and sew them together. I hope your friend likes it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

It came out really nicely- very warm color! I'm always mystified as to why the yarn companies would blend synthetics in with wool?
