Notes

I love my little textured neckerchief and wanted a bigger, warmer, even more rustic version. So I used (some of) the yarn left over from my Walpole.

For this one, instead of alternating textured stripes, I just did one big patch of stockinette, then a big patch of the texture, then the big garter edge.

Finished size, after blocking, is 54 inches wide and 25 inches tall.

Further thoughts and background on the blog, here and here.
