This is a close-up of the front. I wasn't sure about the varigated and considered frogging and changing yarns but I stuck with it til the pattern started to really develop. I'm so glad I did...I love this scarf and it will not be given or sold....IT"S MINE! I seem to be very partial to the varigated yarns...solids are just not as exciting to knit with in my opinion. Although, I must admit, this would probably be a beautiful scarf done in a pretty solid. It's the designer, she is a genius.
This is a close-up of the back side of the scarf. I love that it looks good no matter which side is showing. I also love the earthy tones of this yarn. I almost forgot to mention that this one was done in Bernat Softee Chunky. The color is Nature's Way and the best part...it was on clearance for $1.67! Can't beat that!
This is a scarf I've been working on lately as well. It's done in Lion Brand Wool-Ease. The color is Autumn. I originally bought this yarn for a scarf KAL but it just didn't work well with the pattern so I put it back for later. I decided to just do a 4X4 ribbing so it's a good one for semi-mindless knitting which is something I need lately. Once again, my dear Mother has mentioned how much she would like to have this one. I knit her a small lapghan a few years ago with this same yarn and since it matches....well, it's Mom logic...go figure. lol And this yarn was also on clearance....$2.00!
