Shag scarf


This is my first project from the book, probably the first of many. I used Colinette Tagliatelli. One hank makes a short scarf--I won't be wrapping it around my neck a few times, but it's going to be a fun scarf to wear.

That's gorgeous. What colour is it? Is it Neptune?

Beautiful.

Your scarf looks about 32", the same length as Vivienne's ...am I close? Do you recall how much yardage was in the skein of Tagliatelli and what needle size you used?

The scarf is closer to 40 inches, but it may get longer after I wear it! :) Tagliatelli has about 150 yards per skein, and I used a size 10 needle. If I was making it over again, I might try a 11. But then it wouldn't be as long. Oh well, I'm a loose knitter, so 11's may have been too large for me anyway.
The color is Dusk, which really isn't as blue as it looks in the photo. I've made a pair of socks in the Dusk colorway also, won't I be coordinated!?!
