I'd been dreaming of knitting a Greek-Key pattern in a Double-Knit scarf since I first learned how to double-knit, and I'm SO HAPPY with it! I want one in every color combination!I love this design, it's completely reversible, and the squared spiral works absolutely perfectly for this. It's really easy once you get into it, and you feel like you've accomplished something after every repeat. Meander is named after the Meander River in Turkey that doubles back on itself as it winds its way to the sea. It inspired the Greeks to use its likeness in their decoration.
2 Skeins of Cascade 220 on size 7 needles gave me a nice looong 72inch scarf.

Ohh! I LOVE the colors...and it looks so comfy!

Rube: You like falling, do ya?
Betty: Well, it's not the fallin', it's the jumpin'.
Rube: I'd feel a whole lot better about the jumpin' if it weren't for the fallin'.
Betty: Fallin's easy, you just fall. Jumping involves strength of will.
Rube: Unless you're on a plank

That looks really lovely! The colours are so vibrant, and the pattern so sharp and crisp. Really nice.

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

Great design.  I haven't tried double knitting yet but you make this sound like a good one to try.

ATC personal swap? I spy quilt square swap?

I love it, it came out really well! It reminds me a little bit of the Maze hat pattern from Knitty.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
