This was my first time using a chart (which I made) so it came out a bit squished. The scarf is double knit so it alternates stripes and the ends are the opposite colour on each side.

Boyfriend modelling it:



Detail:



yay! It took about 4 months, double knitting takes twice as long and I mostly made up the pattern as I went (aka, it took me about 20 castons to get the knit right)!

Thanks for looking!

Awesome scarf! I made a simular one though I didn't make it double sided - but what a great idea!

Really good job and I'm not sure I can see the squished part Wink

I love love love this scarf.  I would love it if there is a way to share the graph. 

I love double knitting, but yes, it takes twice as long. Tongue
