With a sigh of relief, I present the Irish Slogging, er, Hiking Scarf.
Specs: 2 full skeins Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Size 8 Brittany needles, finished length 67 inches
The quibbles: I would have liked a longer scarf, but I used up both skeins and didn’t have room in the yarn budget to buy another. Also, given how long *this* scarf took me, longer probably isn’t the direction I should be moving in. If I ever knit another cabled scarf like this (please God no), I would probably go up a needle size too, as this bad boy is pretty densely knit. Not stiff exactly, just compact.
Lastly, the cast on and bind-off ends don’t match – one end is much frillier than the other. Any ideas why that happens? And what to do about it?
Quibbles aside, this makes a fine and cozy scarf.
Almost makes the slog worth it.
