This past weekend I finished a scarf I started in December after reading this post on Steamy Kitchen. I am so pleased with how the scarf turned out!!!
The pattern is Bernet's Knit Neckwarmer with Flower and can be downloaded free on the Steamy Kitchen blog post.
I used yarn I had recycled from a Goodwill sweater -- I think it was a Gap and it's cotton. The yarn gave the scarf a lot of structure, I almost thought too much, but now that I've worn it I think it's perfect.
I opted not to knit the matching flower but to leave my options open -- it looks terrific with a brooch pinned on, or one of my felted flowers, and this way I can change flower colors with what I'm wearing.
