If you like the pattern and want to knit one for yourself or a friend, the original post can be found here.
I'm pretty sure the pattern is right, but I've never been good at that type of thing. I usually just knit (or sew) and then the garment either turns out or it doesn't. If someone wants to know how I did it, I can't always explain. If you find a flaw in my pattern, feel free to contact me and let me know.
What I love about this scarflet is that it's interesting, but not too bulky AND you can use either the wooden stake or a brooch or pretty much anything to hold it in place. Or you can use nothing, just wrap the scarflet around yourself and go! I've even had a request for a neckwarmer version that's literally just a tube. I'll hopefully finish that one by Monday and post a picture shortly thereafter. And then I'm retiring this pattern for at least a few months. I'm flattered so many people like it, but it's time to move on to something else!
