I. Love. This. Scarf.
Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Worsted in 'Deep Sea'
Needles: 5 mm (US 8)
Mods: Heck yes. Basically, the original pattern calls for laceweight, and I wanted to see how it would look knitted up in worsted weight. I used 5 mm needles (instead of the original 3.25 mm) and cast on fewer stitches (for details, my Ravelry project page has more info). Then I just knit the pattern exactly.
Notes: It knit up super quickly, and I love the look of it in the worsted weight- is it crazy to say I think I even prefer it in the worsted? It wasn't a crazy yarn-eating scarf, either, just a little over 500 yards. And even though it's lacy, it's still super warm in the worsted merino.This is intended for a Christmas gift (I don't think she reads the blog.....), but I clearly need one to keep for myself - I love this, and will be a bit sad to gift it!
Did I mention I love this scarf|? Because I really love this scarf. Truly, madly, deeply.
