Branching Out Scarf completed FINALLY



Click here to enter the gallery for this scarf.

Pattern: Branching Out Scarf
Source: Knitty
Yarn: From stash, 2.7 balls of discontinued Jaeger Chamonix in Nimes (yarn review)
Yarn Source: eBay (Jannette's Rare Yarns)
Needle: US10 straight
Length: ~6ft
Made for: My dear sis
Modifications: None except for yarn substitution

This is a very easy and fast knit. Took me about a week to finish it though it would have been much much faster if I had been diligent with my knitting. Hehe. That's my sister modeling for the scarf.

Jaeger Chamonix is heavenly to work with. I would highly recommend this yarn if not for the fact that it had been discontinued. I bought the last 6 balls of it in Nimes at clearance from Jannette. I love this yarn so much that I actually bought 2 packs of it in St Tropez at half price from Westminister Fibers. Because it is discontinued, I am still looking around for a sweater pattern that is worthy of this yarn.

Wow, that yarn really shows off the pattern well! I always imagined this pattern to be a skinnier scarf, and wasn't too tempted to make it, but I really like it at this gauge. Well done!

Oooh, that Chamonix is great yarn! Jaeger has some nice pattern books for it, and also any Rowan Cork patterns will work too. Lots of choices from great designers! Enjoy, and I love the branching out at a thicker weight... hmmm!
