FO - Irish Hiking Scarf


Pattern: Irish Hiking Scarf

Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers (about 2 skeins)

Needles: Size US8

This is a belated bday gift for the hubby. He's tall, so this scarf is loooong. I'm about cabled out for a bit after making this.

I followed the pattern - the only mod I made was slip the first stitch of each row for a neater edge.

Oh, and I blocked it a little. It made a huge difference in the drape and feel of the scarf.

Thanks, everyone! Really, blocking it is what made the difference. The cables all opened up and became much more defined. The pattern is super easy, too!

Ooo that looks great! Did the Cascade feel softer after blocking too?

Thanks again!

Cindy - yeah, it softened up some more after the eucalan. It's super soft now.

dek - this scarf took me about two solid weeks. I would've finished quicker if it wasn't for finals week and writing papers and all that silly nonsense that comes with school.
