This pattern would also work really well with Lion Brand Thick ‘n’ Quick yarn.
02/16/2012: I’ve added some additional photos of a version knitted with Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick ‘n’ Quick. I used one skein each of the following four colors: wood, barley, oatmeal and taupe. Warning! It came out super, super long -- almost 5 yards. Unless you want a monster scarf like that (and, secretly, who doesn’t?), you shouldn’t use an entire skein per i-cord. Send me pix of your final products--I’d love to see them!
