thanks all! Here is a photo of me wearing it, and another photo of another scarf I just finished using different yarn but the same pattern and cast on more stitches.

I really like it--it's beautiful! I just finished the GAP-tastic cowl. I, too, regretted that I didn't use a stretchier CO and BO. I have used Elizabeth Zimmerman's sewn bind-off. It's very stretchy and very easy. I have heard that the cable CO is stretchy. Does anyone know which CO is best for a stretchy edging?

I usually just do long tail, but German twisted is a good stretchy cast on. Personally I find cable cast on tighter, but that may be the way I knit.

Like so many things, the answer is: It depends. Try some different ones and see which works best for you. Youtube has a number of videos for stretchy cast ons that you could check out.

You're right! I just looked it up, and apparently the cable CO is NOT a stretchy CO. For some reason I had it in my head that it was the other way around.

I absolutely love Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off and use it all the time. You do have to watch your tension, though. If you let it get too loose, you can end up with a wavy edge. But with just a little practice, it produces a beautiful and stretchy edge.

A friend from out of town is here and came to visit last night and tried on the scarf. It looked so good on her I had to give it to her.

I'll make another one for myself if I can ever find the yarn again. (Bravo Big)

That looks beautiful! You can probably find a similar yarn.
