When I saw this pattern on Purl Bee, I knew I HAD to have this scarf. I loved the unique stitches that I’ve never seen before. Of course, I couldn’t afford the yarn* so bought an alternative cheaper man-made yarn. I think it came out very nicely! It took me about a month and a half and only two fails. I’m impressed with myself.

Fail 1: The section made of the “Rambler” pattern is slightly wider than the rest of the cowl.
Fail 2: I found this random spot of wrong-side stitches. I don’t know what happened?? *($19.50 per skein x 4) + $23.20 = $101.20; WHAT?? I’m sure the yarn is very nice, but I just can’t justify spending that kind of money on yarn..
