    That's really quite nice, I like the solid colour. I'm working on one now, in Blue Moon Fibert Art's Kid Mo, the Marbles colourway. It's giving me a sort of stripey scarf.

    That looks great. Did you use the yarn as a single strand or did you double it?

    Thanks!

    I used a single strand on size 5 needles. The yarn is fingering weight and when I first started it with the original pattern, it was really narrow! That's why I did the extra pattern repeat to widen the scarf (I could've doubled the yarn but I only ordered 4 balls!) It came out very nice and delicate, I loved the outcome.

    Lovely scarf. Could you tell me how many stitches you cast on to make the scarf wider?
