IRISH HIKING SCARF & 3AM CABLED HAT

Stephen450's picture

Here's the latest product from my needles. At Christmas, my niece looked at a green hat & scarf in a store and mentioned how much she would like a scarf. Later, we were looking at knitting patterns and she really liked the Irish Hiking Scarf. So, I decided to knit this for her out of Ella Rae Classic. She'll have it in time for St. Patrick's Day-- how appropriate!

HHow many skeins did it take to do this project? (Beautifully done, BTW). What did you think of the yarn? A number of LYC have switched to it as one of the basic wool plied yarns. Do you think it will wear well... any prone-ness to pilling that you'd see?

I'm quite sure you are her FAVORITE uncle, aren't you?

The fiber is 100% wool.

The fiber is 100% wool. It's very nice to work with and at $6.95 a skein I thought it was a bargain.
