Attached is the scarf for my sister. While I found it fun, I also found it to be a learning experience as they are so many different sts, you need to pay attention.
I also did not think it was a quick "less than 4 hours knit" for a "beginner." Also, for me, the repeat of 10 patterns of 10 rows would not have been enough. I think I did 20.
But I am happy!
Since Tucker would not pose, I have attached a pic of him being my helper (or maybe more of a hinderance - the reason I make mistakes and had to "tink" -- he likes to play ball while I knit).
