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?
