dancing with myself here...
I have two sleeves and a belt done! I've done the math to knit the back and sides as one piece, dividing for the armholes, and I'm about 6 1/2 inches into the bottom ribbing (hey, 144 stitches in 3x3, it's a small scarf!). The pattern calls for only 3" of ribbing, but I really like the look of the wider ribbing, and knit until I was tired of it.
Now I'm trying to decide what to do for the body. I don't want to do the banana leaf cable, and I *really* want some shaping in there. Not sure if I should stick with ribbing and just change up the count (2x2? 5x1?) or Frankenstein something like the "weekend pullover" into it to get appropriate shaping.
A pickle. A quandry.
Good thing I have another Red Scarf Project scarf to keep my fingers busy while I decide.
