Pattern calls for one skein each MC (STR Mediumweight) and CC (STR Lightweight). Finished dimensions are 13.5 x 77.5, blocked.

From the pattern description:

“Porcupine? Oh no, this delightful pattern cannot possibly be called Porcupine!” Anne Shirley, better known as Anne of Green Gables, would have said. In honor of this literary heroine and her magic fantasy, this scarf bears her name.

The colors are not only reminiscent of “Green Gables”, but would also have been quite stunning with Anne’s auburn hair.

The pattern is from Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. However, rows have been rearranged and expanded for the two-colored variety and a chart was added. The stitch pattern is Mid-Victorian and reversible, which makes it particularly suited for a scarf. Anne, who appreciated fine clothes, would have loved this scarf.

For a more Shibori kind of look, leave the scarf unblocked (see picture in FINISHING section).
