I finally finished this scarf! I made it using some squeaky-assed acrylic which I had lying around in my stash AND I used a plastic hook. Am I a sucker for teeth-hurting noises or what?
Still, I’m pleased with the finished scarf. I was hoping it would be bigger, more of a shawl like she has in the pattern photo but this stitch uses A LOT of yarn. Also, it takes a long time. OK, not as long as it took me (I started in Oct 2011) as I started and then put the project down until earlier this month, but the stitch itself takes a bit of working. But I love the 3D textured effect of the “scales”.
The pattern designer suggests using a mohair which I think would look beautiful and I do have some in my stash, but what if I made a mistake? Mohair isn’t exactly forgiving towards being ripped back. Anyway, another WIP bites the dust. Hurrah!
