my new favourite scarf pattern
(some of the pictures on the Ravelry page are just stunning. I may never stop knitting this with different wools...)
of course, using spectacular yarn (Cadenza, an 80% merino, 20% tussah silk) in fingering weight helps. These tonal greens are so beautiful. The pattern calls for 8 of the triangles, but one ball of the Cadenza will either JUST get me there, or leave me JUST short, so I've got two balls, and I'm going to make this much longer, so it will wrap and wrap around my neck. (Or my Mom's neck - this matches her alpaca coat perfectly...)
Next up, I'm thinking of using some Noro Silk Garden I have hanging around, then maybe some Kauni, or some Fleece Artist...
