That Not So Little Scarf

This took much longer than it should as it required some concentration!

The reverse unblocked, rather like a mogul field. I'm not a skier but was once launched down one of these.

The front.
and
So you won't get too bored of photos, the blocking shots.

Pattern: That Little Scarf, Knitspot
Yarn: Dream in Colour Smooshy, Ruby River.
Very hard to catch the colour but one of these pictures will be near.
The Detail:
I used 4mm needles and did 13 extra pattern repeats, so 32 in total. This gave unblocked dimensions 44" x 6". Blocked aggressively, is there any other way, 71.5" x 9.5".
Despite being opened up much more than the pattern suggests it is still warm and perfect for what I wanted, see next photo. It will not be worn by the stairs on a regular basis!!
Maybe I'll do another some day, I'm thinking Bamboo.
Happy Easter.
