Scarf, Cetlic Lace


This is the from a Susan Oldham pattern in the Best of Knitters book, Scarves and Shawls. The first half of this really long scarf if done and now I'm working on the second half. Frogging has been done. The edging is unusual to me and is supposed to keep it from curling, but not so successully. The ends of the scarf have big tassles and the hat is a cute toque with a tassle as well. Although there are mittens, I don't think I'll make those.

I'm knitting this in Cascade 220 in one of the heathered shades that I just love! Posted by Picasa

I love this scarf, too, but haven't knit it because I couldn't figure out how to make it lie flat and behave, even with the edging. So, is it working or is it just flat because it is being blocked?

Sara, it's not really working!
First half of the scarf I also ran a line of yarn up through the back of the edging to pull it in a bit. That's worked some, but I don't like the edging. Oh, well. I'm almost done and the hat won't have this issue, so I'll knit that and I think when I'm wearing them, it's won't matter too much.

Lovely scarf! Will some aggressive blocking help?

What an interesting shape the end of this scarf have...but I can understand that is is hard to get it right, some fibers really do have their own will.
The colour is simply jummy!
