Trellis Scarf

Pattern: Trellis Scarf by Evelyn Clark from the Spring '06 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Only Natural (20% alpaca, 80% wool dyed with cochineal)
Needles: US5 Addi Turbos
Notes: Don't let the 7 into 5 decrease scare you. If you purl rows 8 and 16 very, very, very loosely it's no problem. The shawl ended up a little short. I didn't have a scale and stopped knitting the main repeat a little too early. I have a small amount of yarn left and probably could have squeezed out one or two more repeats. This scarf has 25 repeats; the pattern calls for 23. I also didn't block this thoroughly. After one strand snapped during blocking I left it alone.
