This scarf is a gift for my boyfriend, and my first completed knitting project. The yarn is Louisa Harding Kashmir DK in Ember and White. It’s a lovely wool/cashmir/microfiber blend that is cable ply. I was impressed with the durability of the cable. It was very resistant to snagging, and I hope will make the scarf look nice for a long time.
Since this was such a basic scarf, I knit with basic measurements in mind, 6 inches wide by 8 feet long, instead of following a pattern. In my excitement, I cast on WAY too many stitches. The final measurements are 12 inches wide by 8 feet long! Other than the extra width, I am pleased with how the scarf turned out. I am particularly pleased with the ends, which I finished by crocheting them together.
