I am learning to knit for the third time, and I think I'm getting somewhere!
As soon as I found this kerchief pattern, I was obsessed, although I wouldn't pay $20+ for the yarn it called for (I'm sure it's worth the price, I don't want to spend too much on materials until I'm sure about what I'm doing).
Looking for the cheap, easy way out, I purchased some naturallycaron.com SPA yarn in Misty Taupe and got to work.

I think that it came out pretty decently, despite the yarn being pretty splitty and my decreases being a little off.
The fabric is extremely drapey and soft. Mmm. Perfect for these cold, rainy Oregon weekends.

And the reverse!

Thank you!
I had no other model or photographer, so did the best I could. heh.  Embarrassed

Oops! I meant to post the pattern.
It's from Alchemy and the only free version I've found is a direct link to download the PDF.
I found it on the blog Vegan Purls which has some really cute pictures of it done with the suggested yarn.
Hope that helps  Cheesy
