Leafy Scarf

Usually I have only one knitting project going. That said, there are times when that project bores me and I want to knit something start to finish in a day or two. While knitting the cabled jacket, I needed such a project. It became this scarf:

I got the pattern from the website of a German women's magazine, but I just went there and it looks like they're not featuring it anymore. I used two skeins of Rowan Big Wool #21, US#17 needles and after a couple of days I was done. It's so thick that I didn't make it long enough to wrap around my neck. Instead it's held together with a vintage pin. The wool has enough stretch so I can just pull the scarf off and don't have to unpin it, which would get old really fast ;-)

Wow Steph that is gorgeous! I just received to skeins of Rowan Big Wool and have been wondering what to do with it!

and what a good idea to make a short scarf and just pin it! Saves the annoyance of "tails" when not required
