FO: Irish Hiking Scarf (but with bulky yarn and only 2 cables per row)
Hiya! Here's my "modified" version of the Irish Hiking Scarf. I didn't like the way it felt on worsted weight yarn, so I used a bulky weight and was a lot happier with it. It's done! YAY!

That's exactly what i did (the bulky weight) and it's much yummier that way!!! Great job, looks so warm What yarn did you use?

Hmmm...I used almost two full skeins, and I believe each skein has 153 yards. Does that help?

Here's the label info:

5.00 oz./140 g (153 yd/140 m)
80% Acrylic, 20% Wool

What a beautiful scarf! I love the color, in the bulky and with only two cables. It looks great that way! I think I'll try it with only two cables when (and if!lol) I ever get around to this pattern. Thanks for sharing!
