Made this a while ago and never got around to posting it. (Where does the time go?)This scarf came out of a contest to pick a literary figure and what they would knit. I picked Sherlock Holmes and thus was born the Dartmoor Scarf using (what else?) a hounds-tooth pattern. The scarf is 5" wide and roughly 60" long.
This is double knitted so both sides are done at the same time. The idea of double knitting was easy to understand, it was harder wrapping my head around the execution of said double knitting. It's definitely not for the faint of heart or anyone who wants instant gratification. The scarf is wonderfully warm, because the double knitting creates pockets that hold air and the yarn is an absolutely yummy alpaca/silk blend.
