That's beautiful and looks wonderfully cozy! It looks really great on your teddy.

What brand of yarn is that? It looks really nice plus it is a great shade of orange.
Nice job!

Itís made with Patons Divine in Orangina, itís a bit hard to work with at first the fluff tends to wrap around and look like an extra stitch but itís so nice and warm when itís finished

Ooooh! I love the Paton's Divine yarns--I'm using the Deep Earth [or whatever it's called] on a shawl at the moment.  For a non-LYS yarn, it's really beautiful, and is certainly more in my price range.  I don't think I've seen that orange color at my local craft store, but I might have to order it, 'cause I just love your scarf [and your model is very handsome!].  I too found it a little tricky to work with at first, especially on smaller needles--I had the same problem you did with the fluffiness sort of camoflauging the stiches.  I switched from size 9 to size 13 needles, knitting rather loosely, and it's much easier to work with--plus the fluffiness gives it a sort of airy, gauzy feel.

Hola!
I love your scarf! I have the same yarn in the orangina and floral fantasy but was wondering what size needles you used cause I can't seem to find a size that I like with this yarn.

I used size 13 needles when I used Divine to make a wrap--I think they were a good fit.

Black Lamb, are you allergic to this too?  I made one very similar (I swear, didn't hit this forum until I was like, finished mine!) and I've been wearing it and it makes me sneeze Sad  It's very tragic for me.
