ooohhhhhhhhh I like the double-symbol idea.
Last night I thought of doubling the ends as CateKnit suggested. I had also thought about somehow doubleknitting the ends (tube at ends) but hadn't worked out how to make those extra stitches & have it work well. I think elongating the scarf and folding over as CK & Ingrid suggest is a great idea.
I just wasn't excited about doubleknittting the whole scarf as worsted weight it would probably get pretty heavy, warm yes but heavier than necessary. Of course if I had to DK, then I could order more yarn....
Also I've seen where folks have lined their scarves with fabric and that just doesn't thrill me (EX: link +click DIY
for Om scarf). It's not bad but I just don't love it.
Thanks you guys. I think folding over the ends may be the ticket!
