i finished this last night whilst watching "my best friend's wedding". (Just don't bother. I only watched b/c I wanted to knit.) Need to weave the ends in still, though. Meh.



YAY!!! It's in the famously discontinued (Why? Why'd you do it, Rowan, just why? Rowan Chunky Cotton Chenille, which I double-stranded. I made it 2 stitched wider that the pattern, and am v. pleased with my first modification (LOL). I also wrote the pattern out properly, so it was far easier to follow.

I love this, it's so chunky and snuggly and mmmmmm, but it's a present, part of the Xmas loot. Should I give this to my aunt's BF or would-be godfather Alun? Would this be more suitable for a straight or gay man? What do you think? I don't know if I have enough yarn left to make a ribbed scarf for the one who won't get it. Hmm.

That came out great!  I love the colors. 
Whom should you give it to??  Well, my "macho"  husband wouldn't such a wavy thing, (he likes to pretend and probably really loves it)  So, I guess my vote would go to the gay component?

Its beautiful, I love the colors.  I'll have to add this pattern to my "to knit" list, which is getting very long.  Silly classes and work keep getting in the way of my knitting.
I would probably give it to the gay man, but thats just me.

It's lovely! Smiley  I'd definitely give it to the gay man though, is my instinct answer!  A ribbed scarf is definitely a winner for a straight man who'd secretly love a scarf like this though.

Great job! I agree with everyone else--when the scarf ain't straight, the recipient probably shouldn't be either. Smiley

Thanks everyone  Grin I love it when I get nice feedback from lovely people such as yourselves. Grr, I rarely get comments on le crafty blog.

  A ribbed scarf is definitely a winner for a straight man who'd secretly love a scarf like this though.


Yeah...that's what I think he is...secretly he'd like it...

I just don't know if I have enough cotton chenille left! Probably half a ball, of 2 black and 1 burgandy. I *have* to make those colours though. WHY DID THEY HAVE TO DISCONTINUE IT?  Sad

I love it!  I did this one a while back... I can't remember now what type of yarn I used, but it was before I had bothered with the concept of "checking for gauge", and it turned out a lot thinner than yours.  Luckily I made it extra long, because it takes 2 or 3 times around to cover up a neck.  The color change is nice.  I love chenille!   Cool

Thanks! I didn't bother gauging, though as I mentioned I made it slightly wider. I like to think that I have a talent in randomly picking out needles...I used fat size 1 needles (UK size I believe). Thin scarves are cute but no good for keeping warm.

That turned out awesome. For some reason, it screams "give me to a gay man!" at least, that's what it's screaming at me. I think it's the wavynessosity of it. *nod*
