Here is a pic and a detail shot:
I used Jaeger Matchmaker merino wool, it is lovely and soft and a bit squishy too! I bought it at Wools and Crafts in Blackstock Road, Finsbury Park, London.
I really like the way the edges curve in and out. But even though I'd done loads of cowls, I had to adapt the pattern for a scarf: I tried the pattern without any purl stitches between each motif and then with two purl stitches. I ended up using one, that worked best.
Because the scarf stubbornly rolled in from the long edges while I was knitting (I ended up with something resembling a sausage more than an accessory to be worn round the neck!) I was prepared to block the scarf aggressively (as the phrase goes) but all I did was to wet it down - and, hrrch!, it went flat as a pancake. Oh dearie me, that rather scared me. I found that I didn't have to stick any pins into this whatsoever, it stayed quite nicely in shape as soon as I draped it. Once it was dry it lost the 'pancake' flatness and took on a resemblance of life. So that was good.
I am pleased with the result. I hope the recipient likes it too and that I picked a good colour.
