Just learned a month or so ago, and I completed this about two week ago.
It was supposed to be a scarf from a pattern in the "I Taught Myself How to Knit" book [it didn't help me at all...]. But I ended up changing around the colors, and lengthening the color sections. I also made the scarf longer because I love long scarves.
I used Lion Suede yarn for this. The colors look off in the picture, the colors are really teal, red and off-white.
Im working on a matching hat, though I doubt I'd ever wear the matching hat =P
