Knitty's loss is our gain! I was admiring your scarf during ISE5 and was lucky enough to be browsing this evening and found that you'd posted the pattern! I would love to give it a go. It's so pretty. I'm hoping it will suit the yarn I've bought for my pal but if not, I'll be making one for my mum later in the year in a solid colourway. Thanks so much for sharing! I'm sure it will become a very popular pattern. Best wishes...Bernie

Thanks, Rachel! I appreciate your well wishes & sweet comments. :)

Sweet scarf! I bet it's really soft because it's made with bamboo yarn. :)

You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something which I feel I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I am looking ahead on your next submit, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
