Scalene by Carina Spencer in Dirty Water Dyeworks, Bertha in colors, chocolate raspberry and dahlia.
This is a asymmetrically shaped scarf that is made unique through the addition of a keyhole pocket to slide one point into. I like that the designer included directions for three different weights of yarn. Mine is a sock weight yarn. The only changes I made were that I omitted a few rows at the end and opted for a solid strip rather than a second band of stripes. The original has a large band of stripes, a middle solid and then a second band of stripes. I was introduced to this pattern and wool at the Sheep and Wool Festival and this is my first project from the wool I bought there. There are a few little mistakes from when i was knitting in the blackout but, other then that I think it looks nice. I can think of lots of pretty color combinations that would be quite striking for this pattern. The yarn is pretty scrumptious too.
