After I saw Annie's and Margaret's gorgeous scarves, I decided to make one too. This pattern is so beautiful. Upon a quick glance, it looks somewhat similar to the Tiger Eye Scarf, but it is much easier to knit in my opinion. I did not try to memorize the pattern, but after a few repeats, I could pretty much figure out what to do next based on the previous row. It also knit up faster than Tiger Eye.
I wanted the two ends of the scarf to be symmetrical, so I worked the scarf from two ends and then joined them together. Each half has 19 pattern repeats. I had planned to graft the two halves using the Kitchener stitch. Well, I was only about 1/3 of the way through when I spotted a big hole. I could not figure out what went wrong. The lace border also presented some difficulties for grafting. I ripped back the join, almost dropped a stitch in the process. After all that, I decided to just do the safe and easy three needle bind-off. Although it is not as seamless as Kitchener stitch, I know I can do it without dropping any stitches... :D
