I enjoyed knitting the pattern and I love the FO. The movement of the stripes combined with the color changes of the yarn are a great match. The yarn however. The yarn was…not fun to knit. I didn’t like its loosely spun texture. I’m glad I motored through though because I love the end result. The scarf is so lightweight but I expect it to still be quite warm.
Yarn: Lang Jawoll Magic Degrade
Mods: I wanted to use the whole ball of yarn and weighed each wedge to track usage. I knew that final wedge would be veeeery close. I got through to the final wedge but ran out of yarn mid-way right before the BO. I had some sockweight yarn in deep purple that I finished with. I can’t tell the difference. Phew. Yay for using up the whole ball!
I did have an issue with gauge that I wouldn’t have noticed if I wasn’t weighing progress. I significantly loosened my gauge on the third wedge. I tightened my gauge on the fifth wedge and I like that gauge much better for this yarn. It’s so neat and tidy. You can see the gauge differences above, but they’re not enough to bother me. Especially since I intend to wear this wrapped around my neck and under my jacket.
The verdict: love the pattern, love the FO, but not the yarn.
