Irish Hiking Scarf aka Stash Project #1



I finally finished Nikki's Irish Hiking Scarf (Look at Hello Yarn if you want to make your own). I really like the way it all turned out. Here it is both far away and up close. I didn't space my cables evenly (House and Scrubs were more interesting than counting rows), but I think it adds character. My friend who now owns the scarf is a muggle and couldn't care less about the spacing between the cables. She loves her scarf (Thank goodness, I was a bit worried) and I love the Jimmy Stewart collection of DVDs she got me (I want my own Pukka named Harvey when I grow up).
Alrighty, now for the specifics of the scarf...



Pattern: Hello Yarn's Irish Hiking Scarf
Yarn: Ella Rae Classic in a light green
Amount of Yarn Used: 2 full skeins made around a 60 inch scarf

I really liked this pattern and I now understand why people can't seem to stop at knitting just one.

Your scarf is beautiful. Lovely color! I'm going to find some size 8 needles and make one too!

How did you like the Ella Rae yarn? I'm thinking of getting some for a sweater...
