Not so Bright Stripes!

I am thinking that this year will be the year of the scarf for me....

Pattern: Bright Stripes from Scarfstyle
Started: Sept 11, 2007
Finished: Sept 22, 2007
Yarn: Malabrigo...from way back when...left overs from this...this...and this!
Adjustments: None really...while casting on I lost count...not that it matters how many stitches you cast on, but this scarf has 285 stitches...making it nice and LONG! I wasn't really sure about the pom poms. I was actually going to just make a fringe...but decided to go with the pom poms...I am glad I did, I really like it! The actual pattern calls for 5 on each end, but I felt 3 was enough.

There is nothing special here...just a nice simple knit. I used the crochet cast on so that I wouldn't have two different edges on the scarf. The crochet one seems to match the cast off nicely.

This is perfect for fall and winter...if it ever arrives.

Another great scarf, and the pom poms look fantastic. You seem to be knitting them so quickly too.

Cuuute! I can't seem to stop thinking about scarves either - must be wishful thinking for fall...

I'm trying to get a good look at the scarf but all I can see is that jacket. I think I love that jacket, oh and I like the scarf too =)

I absolutely love this scarf! The pictures are great! Wow! I'm not a pom-pom person, but it works very well with this scarf.

It is cute! Love the colours you used and I agree I like your three pom-pom version better than the original five.

The scarf is awesome! I have that book but I don't remember seeing that scarf; I'll have to go dig it out now. The jacket is fab too. :)
