Windy City Scarf

It's a really quick-to-knit keyhole scarf, knit in a k1p1 rib pattern. I used two skeins of Caron Simply Brites, one in that bright blue color, and the other in that neon green. I can't remember the actual names of the yarn colors. I started it maybe a day or so ago, and was able to knit up half in one day, and the other half over the course of two days (on and off knitting).

Very pretty. I really like the green. I've always wanted to make that scarf.

I love those bright colors!!  I'm almost done knitting this up now and it is really fast.  I think I've spent about the same amount of time as you.

I know it's been a while since anyone has talked about this particular post, but I'll send this out there anyway.  I've finally got around to making this scarf after thinking it was a nifty idea for about a year.  Now I need some opinions.  I like my scarves long, do we think it would work if I just made it long, wrapped it around my neck several times, and then tucked the end through the hole?

I think I would do the keyhole before the wrapping around the neck multiple times, but that's just me.  Although, the keyhole is to keep such a short scarf from falling off.. and long scarves, especially when wrapped around the neck more than once, tend to be pretty secure even against the wind, so it might defeat the purpose?

I actually never thought about it that way.  I suppose I'm going more for the look, rather than the functionality.  I like the hole as a detail, so I think I'm going to try it.  I guess the worst thing that could happen is I have to tear out a bit if it doesn't turn out to my liking.
