I absolutely loved this project! I’ve never enjoyed knitting a scarf in my life, but something about this one kept drawing me to my needles! I loved the repeat, it never got boring. And it went so fast because I couldn’t put it down!

I followed the charted instructions. I never quite got around to memorizing them, but I didn’t find that to be a problem.

I did find it helpful to highlight the rounds on the increase/decrease sections where the stitches change! I learned pretty quickly that rounds 3 and 11 are the ones that don’t have increases/decreases.. But just in case, a quick glance at the pattern would tell me what I needed to do, rather than having to read to the whole line!

I dyed this yarn with Lemon Lime Kool-Aid! My yardage is exact. I had 1.4oz left out of two skeins!
