Those are great! I love the scarf. Are you giving the scarf to a male? Because I think it would make a wonderful man's scarf. Good classic color as well. The hedgie is adorable! -Ve

Wow! Thanks for your kind words

Although the wool does look masculine in the photo, it is actually quite girlie in reality! It is Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK, which I had bought for a jumper for my DH but it wouldn't have been right for a man! So I am knitting a cardie for my Mum with it instead.

The pattern is a Knitting Daily one by Ann Budd which I found in their pattern library. It is really easy to do, even though it looks complicated, so I am thrilled with it, and your comments make me feel even better!!

Thanks guys

I love how the pattern makes the scarf edges a bit wavy. And adorable hedgehog!
