FO - Klein Scarf
 
This is the Secret Santa knitting I did at work during my breaks. I finished it about a week ago but only just managed to get a photo. It's a great free pattern called Klein Scarf, a very simple four row repeat using nothing more than knit and purl stitches. The yarn is a favourite brand of mine, Shepherd's Wool by Stonehedge Fiber Mill from right here in (Northern) Michigan (an official US Winter Olympic supplier too!). It's worsted weight, the exact same type I used for my Rannoch Moor Cowl. I cast on 36 stitches (instead of 32) and it's 62" long.

It's beautiful and I really love the color. That'll brighten up a cold, dreary day. :thumbsup:

What a wonderful, soft scarf. It's beautifully knit and in such a warm, rich red. I love it!

The stitch pattern makes the scarf incredibly "bouncy", it's very nubby and warm. When it's rolled or folded up I reckon you could sit on it and it wouldn't squash down much! Just what you want for snowy 17F days! (-8C)

Just have to say again how much I love the idea of 'Secret Santa Knitting'! :) The scarf is a great color and I like the texture, amazing what a four row repeat can look like.

Oooh, this is just gorgeous!! I love that deep, rich red, too!

Really like the pattern and the rich red color.
I downloaded the pattern and it calls for a DK weight, Shepard's Wool is actually a worsted weight. What size needles did you use and how wide did the 36 stitches turn out to be?
Thinking of making one for a girlfriend who made me one of those pottery yarn bowls.
