I have to say that I'm really proud of this scarf. It is the first time I've knit anything that wasn't just plain garter or stockinette stitch. I had always turned my cheek on anything that had to do with increasing or decreasing or slipping stitches. I was pleasantly surprised at how EASY this pattern was to follow -- after a few sets of the sequence it gets memorized and you can just go with it. Whoo hoo!
I used plain old RedHeart acrylic yarn for this, but I'd like to try making it with a lacy yarn so that the "holes" for the lace look are more visible.
