Garden Path Scarf by Kelly Casanova

Pattern: Digital copy £5.56 available on Etsy
Yarn: I received this yarn free as part of a giveaway they were doing in 2020.
Total (excluding labour): £5.56 (obviously the free yarn made this a bargain!)
Started – 30th March 2021
Finished – 8th April 2021
I made some slight alterations to the pattern. I calculated that I would be able to get an additional repeat on the width (8 ends/4 slots). Instead of 3 tabby/plain weave rows between each bouquet I did 5. This was to help reduce the amount of bouquets I would have to do and to give the finished scarf a little more warmth/structure. I’m really happy with the decision that I made.
I am really happy with the finished project. There are free videos available on the internet that someone could easily replicate this pattern without the need to buy a pattern, but I do find that I am more motivated when there is a pattern to follow and I am happy to support Kelly. I am a member of her weaving online school as well.
The yarn feels nice to the touch, I am yet to give the finished scarf a soak, but so far it feels nice on my neck. Not as soft as the baby camel and silk or alpaca that I wear around my neck most of the time, but this does feel a little softer than the ADVENTuresome shawl that I knit with similar yarn.
