Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon Osborn (a triangular scarf)
I almost never knit for myself. I either cast on with someone specific in mind to be it's recipient or give away a completed piece to an avid admirer. However, I decided it was time to be a little selfish. I wanted to knit a triangular scarf in autumnal colors that would also coordinate with a few jackets I have.
I was inspired by the changing foliage brought about by a VERY welcomed cooling climate...Fall in South Louisiana is so unbelievably beautiful that it makes schlepping through an impossibly humid, hot summer (almost) worth every gargantuan mosquito.
I used Schaefer's "Anne" (merino/mohair/nylon blend) for the main body in the Toni Morrison colorway and Knit Picks Stroll (merino/nylon) in Masala Tweed for the edging. The Schaefer yarn is a tightly spun 3 ply which seems like it will hold up well to my notoriously abrasive, thick beard.
I added a 2 repeats to the body chart and modified the edging to accommodate the yardage of the Stroll yarn I had leftover from another project. I'll put all the details on Ravelry.
I'm thinking of cutting out all of the little blue bits of dongeal in the border. It would take a little time, but they're sort of bugging me. You really don't notice them too much in person unless you look closely. What do you think?
