Shirley's Scarf

The second project that I completed over Thanksgiving is the Liesel Scarf. This is a free pattern that you can find here. The scarf is not a hard knit, but it wasn't a pattern that I could memorize. It took me the car ride home to complete (I'm thinking that I knit at least 10 of the 12 hour trip).
Here are my specs for the scarf.

Size Needle: I used size 8 addi turbos. I might go up to a 10 next time to make the scarf more lacy looking. Although, for the PGH climate, more substance is better.

Yarn: I used Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted and got 22 repeats of the pattern completed. I might have been able to squeeze out a 23rd repeat, but I really didn't want to have to rip back. Thinking about it now, I could have put in a lifeline with no worries. Hmmmmm...

Other Notes: This is a project that needs blocking. It looks so much better after being steamed blocked. It is also a fairly reversible pattern. This is one that I would knit again.

Veeery pretty! I love Malabrigo! I used the thick and thin for the purple wrist warmers you commented on.
