Katie had at least a half-dozen false starts with this scarf. There were requirements of design (namely, suitable length) that needed to be reconciled with available quantity of yarn. It's Malabrigo, purchased locally a couple of years ago, but that's all I know at the moment. She thinks she may still have a ball band. She settled on a simple drop-stitch pattern on large-ish needles and I'm having a hard time finding just the right word to describe it; glorious and magnificent are not words I commonly use, but they're among the first to pop into my head. Spectacular, too.
It is positively balmy outside today. A well-chosen and attractive scarf may be all that's needed. I'm outta here!
ETA: Pattern details! I am certain that it’s Malabrigo, nearly certain that it’s Aquarella, and pretty darn sure that the colorway is Soriano (it is absolutely gorgeous). She used a simple drop-stitch pattern and the recipe goes something like this:
3 hanks of Malabrigo (probably Aquarella)
Cast on 18 sts and knit a few rows in garter stitch.
Row 1: K1, wrap three times repeat across, K1.
Row 2: Knit across, dropping the wraps between stitches.
Repeat until desired length (leaving enough yarn for fringe, if desired); knit a few rows in garter; cast off.
