I chanced upon this lovely pattern (Spoilt For Choice by Anne Thompson) and knew I needed one for Fall 2012! Cheesy
I used some alpaca blend sport weight yarn that was in my stash and adjusted my needle size to account for the difference.  The pattern is a series of repeats...and for a longer scarf, I did a total of 7 repeats.



Close-ups:





There are so many possible ways to wear this and I can't wait to experiment.  I already know it'll be awesome as a scarf Wink

I love it!! It's such a cool design and I'm sure you'll have fun wearing it. Good color choice. That will go with nearly everything.

It looks really fun! I won't even try to wrap my mind around how you might make that, I'll just enjoy looking at it! Cheesy

Amazing.  It actually looks as if it was very complicated to knit.  I hope you will put up a picture or two of you wearing it so I can see the possibilities.

Love it! I can see it looking so great as a shrug over vest tops.

I fell in love with this when I saw it!  I thought it would be super complicated but it really is not!  I am swatching mine now to make sure the holes will fit over all body parts so I can wear it many ways...I love it worn as a skirt over a black sheath dress...

So much more fun to knit that a rectangle...yours turned out so super--love the color and the feel!  It is will be great to wear soon! Cheesy

Thanks all Cheesy  I am definitely looking forward to using this in Fall!

Amazing.  It actually looks as if it was very complicated to knit.  I hope you will put up a picture or two of you wearing it so I can see the possibilities.

If you do a search for that pattern, the designer actually has a bunch of pictures showing some of the ways the piece may be worn Cheesy  I have some other ideas on how I would wear it as well...and that's one of the things I love about this pattern...options!!!

It looks really fun! I won't even try to wrap my mind around how you might make that, I'll just enjoy looking at it! Cheesy

It's really more complicated than it looks.  Uber deceptive!  It's mostly a series of knits and purls...followed by well-placed bind-offs and cast-ons Cheesy

I love it!! It's such a cool design and I'm sure you'll have fun wearing it. Good color choice. That will go with nearly everything.

It's definitely an awesome design!  Now that I've finished one in a dark chocolate hue, I'm thinking that I might need to knit another with some burnt orange yarn that I have in my stash Cheesy  It's a rather mindless project to work on...so I might save this for future road trips?

Love it! I can see it looking so great as a shrug over vest tops.

Yep!  Shrug...or since it has so many holes in it, it may even serve as a vest over tank tops or strapless tops Cheesy

Yay!  I'm stoked that you're making one for yourself Cheesy  It'll definitely be more fun to work on than a regular rectangle (not to mention that it'll be lighter and less bulky!).  You'll have to show us the fininshed piece when you get done Smiley
