I used Bamboozle yarn from Lincraft, which is a bamboo and cotton blend. Once I got used to using it instead of wool, I rather enjoyed it. There are fifteen motifs in this scarf rather than the sixteen in the pattern – I’m a short person!
It has rather nice drape, and has come up well after blocking (which I do with a steam iron – which is not at all what any of the books say to do). I’m planning on doing a couple more as Christmas gifts. If you make this scarf, remember to check the online errata, as there is an error in the pattern.
It was very exciting to win something – especially a bag pattern, and it’s my first by Amy Butler. It seems quite unusual though – a bag with a side zipper? Anyway, I’ll give it a go!
