Backyard Leaves Scarf

Yarn: Galway Irish Worsted Knitting Wool, 2 balls

While the scarf came out just fine, I think this wool was a bit too stiff (and a bit too scratchy for my liking). If knit again, I'd use merino wool as the pattern calls for.

Starting the scarf was tricky, but after the first repeat you'll be sailing.

I finished it by steam blocking it with a damp towel. You can see a comparison of the blocked and unblocked halves here.

I'm planning on doing Forbes Forest for my next Scarf Style project.

    Kelly, this is absolutely beautiful. I really need to restart mine! Thanks for the great blocking tips.

    So pretty! I'm getting ready to block mine and wanted to be extra careful doing it. Thanks!
