Manos Italian Chain Scarf
I don't know what I would do without Barbara Walker or her knitting pattern treasuries.
Some time ago I bought two skeins of Manos del Uruguay 100% Wool, colorway 113 Jewel Tones. It was one of those "I'm not going to use this yarn until I have the perfect pattern" scenarios. With a bit of research, I found one I liked. The pattern had to be open and airy and look good from both sides. After some test runs, I ended up using the Italian Chain pattern on size 10.5US needles. The scarf is a little over 5' long.
I can hardly wait until it gets cold enough to wear!
