FO: My So-Called Scarf

I've been meaning to knit this scarf since back before the days of Ravelry...  back when we all used to all hang out on Craftster.  (Which, BTW, I totally miss!)

In my efforts to stashbust last year, I decided to use up some funky yarn that I bought back in 2007... also Craftster days, so it was an appropriate choice.  Of course, then it took me a year to finish the scarf, but in the end, it turned out lovely, I used up all the yarn, and I crossed the pattern off my list.  Done and done!

  • Notes for cast off on wrong-side row: Purl two together. * Purl next two together, then pass the far right stitch on right needle over to bind off. Repeat from * to the end of the row.
  • After knitting a yard of this, I realized that I had been making a mistake in the pattern.  What mistake?  I don't really know. I just know that I picked it up several months later, started following the pattern, and realized it was drastically different.  Oops!  Had to frog.
