Gorgeous, right? This has such a great woven texture to the knitting. Lets look closer:
I think I cast on 300 stitches. I should have made a note, and really should have blocked my swatch. Duh! Wanting a really long scarf, the cast on was really long. After the knitting was done this scarf was about 84 inches.
After blocking the scarf is 7 inches wide, and 94 inches long. Not counting the fringe. LEts see the fringe:
At the beginning and the end of each round i had extra stitches I knit into. Then I k1tbl and started the linen stitch. This made a great edge, and easy fringe. I worked in the round, and cut the yarn between the rounds after binding off. The result is a light weight, warm scarf i'm going to be using for a long time. It weighs 6.7 ounces, and is just the bright accessory I needed for winter. Turns out linen stitch worked in light weight yarn (mostly fingering) on large needles (US #7) makes great scarf. Now I want a wrap. But i'm going to need more scraps, or use whole skeins. It probably won't need to be as long.
Just had to include a picture of another finished item:
