Here is James modelling his new "Stripes" scarf.
During the knitting of the scarf, one of the decisions I had to make was whether to make the stripes pattern symetrical. In the end, and upon Isabel's advice, I did not. There is a purposeful assymetry which you can see below. Also, check out how both the cast-on and cast-off edges mirror each other. I used a needle 2 sizes larger to work the cast-off stitches.
Finally, see how the wrong side looks great too?
All in all, a simple, truly satisfying project. Hope your new year has had an equally auspicious beginning.
