Here is my lovely wish scarf. The pattern is (once again!) from Let's Knit magazine (a UK publication). It's made from two balls of Rowan Tapestry in Lead Mine. I'm really pleased with the result. Any comments gratefully received.

Wow... that's so beautiful! Great work!  Shocked I really love the yarn and the pattern in itself. I'm just a beginner knitter... I hope that I'll be able to knit something this beautiful one day.

Wow!  This is very beautiful and the color change is ethereal.  I love it.  Smiley

(BTW, why is it called a Wish Scarf?  Is that the name of the pattern, or a name that you gave it?  Anyway, it's lovely.   Smiley )

Thank you all for your lovely comments. To answer the various questions:

The pattern was called Wish Scarf, not my choice of name Grin

The ends don't taper in, it's just the way I took the photo. i.e. I didn't lay it out properly  Smiley

It's long enough to wrap right around my neck then back down to the front. That's a very poor description. Unwrapped it probably hangs down to past my waist on each side.

The pattern is actually much harder than it looks. Basically you make long wraps on the first row, which gives really long stitches for the next, and then they are reordered to get the cross over effect. Hmm, easier to do than to describe as well!  Cheesy

That stitch is wonderful! And the yarn is really nice, the white parts almost glow in contrast to the dark parts.

Gorgeous scarf.  The pattern---it sounds sort of like a twisted drop-stitch...?
