Pattern: A rip off of Crazy Aunt Purl's Magic Scarf.
Yarn: Caron's Simple Soft Shadows in Autumn Red Their photo is almost as bad as mine. Think rust with variegations of jewel tones. Two skeins used.
Needles: Size 9 straights.
Size: About six inches wide and just under six feet long.
Mods: Auntie wanted me to do ten rows before changing the stitches. I did five. I liked how the squares looked with five rows more than Auntie's ten. Totally a personal taste thingy. I stopped knitting when I ran out of yarn.
I also ignored her number for casting on. I found a width I liked, made sure it would be wide enough, and started knitting. Very easy pattern to customize to your own taste, and I only had to frog it once for size.
Again?: No. This was a very boring knit and I was thrilled to see the end of it.
Lessons Learned: A boring knit is not a happy knit.
Time served: A week and half... off and on... give or take...
The UpSide: It's machine wash/dry.
Can you believe that cabled scarf still is not dry? o.0
