Here's a simple, little scarf I knitted for a girlfriend in Noro (just one ball), not quite big enough for a man, but perfect for a lady, hope you like it?

Love it, DavidSydney63. You're a sweetie for sharing (and for knitting it for a lady friend). Wish I was one of your lady friends.
before I attempt to knit one, can you tell me: does it curl up? would it be ok to knit sides to prevent?

It does have a tendency to curl so I added 5 stitches on either side of garter stitch AND I blocked it when it was finished (moderately hot iron, steam, over a tea-towel).

forgot to mention - I added 5 rows of garter stitch to the beginning and the end of it (sandwiching the layers of pattern).

I just saw this! (How did I miss it?)
Such a lovely, delicate scarf! I love the bold colors paired with the lace. Very well done, David.
