This is a scarf I've just finished:
and a close~up:
I first saw this on Ellen Bloom's blog.
(You'll have to scroll down a bit to find a picture of the original scarf.)
Ellen, a prolific, talented and generous craftster from L.A., kindly emailed me the pattern. I crocheted it with Paton's Jet, a soft alpaca and wool mix that I loved working with, using a 5.50 mm hook. It was easy to make and I'm really happy with the end result.
