Isn't this scarf great? I

Isn't this scarf great? I just did this scarf for the Scarf Exchange. I had a lot of fun knitting it and have bought more yarn to make more scarves. I love the texture and the fact that the scarf is double-sided. I used a wool-silk blend, which was so wonderful to work with! I like the color you chose. I think solids really work best for this, if you want to show off the texture pattern.

your project was where i got the inspiration. thanks. yeah solids, maybe some tweed, and uniform thickness. bumpy yarn would fight the clean symmetry of it and maybe lose the illusion

Nice work Steve! Someone

Nice work Steve! Someone posted this particular pattern a while back and I started one, but for one reason or another I ripped it and it's now waiting its turn for me to try again. I enjoyed working the pattern, but I think I wasn't using a solid color so the pattern wasn't showing up clearly enough. I'll definitely give it another go. Thanks for the inspiration!
