Finished Zig Zag
So, here we have the finished product. Looks kind of Scandinavian to me. As you can see, I decided to include the pom poms - for 2 reasons: 1. more fun for a teenager; 2. because I used acrylic yarn, I wouldn't be able to block the end peaks of the scarf effectively - the weight of pom poms will help keep the peaks more defined.
The colours on the photo still did not come out that great, sorry.
