Red Hot Scarf
The Candle Flame scarf is done! I finished it earlier this week and then gave it to my friend Tracy (she of chenille scarf fame) this morning as a belated birthday gift.
The yarn is more of that wonderful Malabrigo merino worsted in the Amoroso colorway. The pattern is here, and I knit it pretty much according to pattern except for two little mods: I started the scarf by casting on three stitches and continuing the pattern from row 2, and instead of decreasing by S2,K1, PSSO, I used a S1, K2tog, PSSO just because it's easier to do. I also added little tassels made from the tiny bit of yarn that was left over. I gave the scarf a very light steam block to keep the ends from rolling under. I really like the textural, bumpy quality and didn't want to lose that.
