i've learned my lesson: when you start a project, have at least a vague plan of what you want it to become.

i saw http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15628.0 this scarf about a year ago and immediately picked colours and started working the chart. just for fun, i made it double knit.

when i finished the chart, i thought "crap... now what?" and then i saw the holiday 2006 issue of vogue knitting with the woven trellis (http://www.camillavalleyfarm.com/pics/magazines/vogue2006c.jpg) and started knitting the strands.

after many months of neglect, i finally picked it up last week and finished the strands, but couldn't decide what to do on the other end. so i drew up a chart and knit it in one day out of pure frustration

here it is, my labour of love... i will never attempt anything like this ever again. i hope ya'll think it turned out well.

one side:


other side:


being worn:


i might add tassels to the bottoms because i feel like it falls a little short... i'm also trying to think of a way to cover up the edges of the dk panels because they're a little rough... so if you have any suggestions i'd love to hear them.

thanks for looking!

I think it's lovely just the way it is.  How you knitty/crochetty folk make such fabulous things of bits of string boggles my ming.

WOW.  you're right, that's really complicated!  it looks really cool though.  i think tassels for the end would be a good idea, and maybe you could use some binding to neaten up the DK edges?  something like seam tape or thin bias tape would work...  you'd probably have to hand-sew it though (but handsewn binding looks so nice).
