Notes

What a nice pattern!
Easy to follow you wont get bored with this patern =)
About the yarn, like always,Shelter is an amazing yarn to work with. And the colour, Truffle Hunt, Its so nice, Is it gray, is it brown? … its the colour of the truffles !

What I like about Jared Flood patterns is that you always learn something new, always !

I used tubular cast on, wow, so neat, love it
It helped me a lot to paint the chart, warm colours cable at the back, cold colours cable at the front.
Great and ,new to me, way to make buttonholes!

Someone was asking about the back of the scarf, here is a picture of it, its not messy at all.

About the buttons, Love them all, it was hard to decide which one to use.
They are light weight
I contacted Demeter, from Stone Alone. Working with her was a pleasure.
I sent her a picture of the yarn, she selected some stones and I couldn’t pick tree of course , they were all nice.
The stones are from the Mediterranean sea, I asked Demeter to send me a picture of the beach where she collects the stones, so now , when I see the buttons, I can picture where they are coming from =)
Demeter, really nice working with you.

Again, it was a long process, but so worth it, thank you Mr. JF for another amazing pattern.

We just went for a walk -15C outside and this scarf is great for this weather !
