I can't tell you how many times I ripped this sucker out! I just never ended up with the right scarf. Sometimes it was too short, sometimes too skinny, too wide, but eventually I found a combo that was just right. It still turned out short, and that's why I made a cowl out of it. I didn't use a pattern, just knitted it up on size 11 sticks. Oh and I also made the hat, but it's crocheted. Thanks for looking!
