the above link is the easiest chart to print

I used a 2 color long tail cast on. Made the chart 35 wide giving 2 stitches to each side of the design. I like it when my work is centered.

1/17/14 Half way, YAY!

Repeated the design 3.5 times and did some things in between my repeats

1/18 I really want to finish this before my friend comes on the 21st. so lets see if I can do over 20,000 stitches.

1/21/14 - finished. my hand is ACHING! Good grief it hurts.

1/22/14 - hand hurt so much that I could only drive with my left hand yesterday to see my out of town friend. But, the scarf is done and it is lovely.

more awesome charts to play with

I did notice that this chart was used in a popular paid for sock pattern called “nightingale”. So get the pattern for free. see the socks at the link below.
