The last little bit....

Of the red chunky from the previous posts that is.
Owen was playing with the yarn in my projects-on-the-go bag and kept snuggling the leftover Marble chunky against his cheek to feel it's softness. Now I know I didn't have enough for a scarf but I thought what the heck, let's see how far we get. I even thought I might be about to break the no yarn buying rule to get a decent length scarf. But as it happens I ended up with a scarf that is about 85cms long. Not long enough to knot or wrap around but just long enough for Owen to wear it the way he always wears scarves - hooked round the back of his neck and then crossed over in the front so that it lies flat down his chest. It isn't bulky under his coat either so just about perfect really. 

Technical details:
Yarn: James C. Brett Marble chunky - the final 80g.
Needles: 6mm straights.
Pattern: No pattern followed, it's a scarf!
Cast on 29sts, and then garter stitch with a slip stitch rib pattern on each side.

Another one for the gift box. Good job really as the red bag has come out and been claimed by Jen already!
Now back to the squares........

hehehehe I have that exact yarn upstairs. I used some at Yule to make a shawl for a friend. Haven't decided what to do with the rest.
