The Men's Cashmere Scarf (from Last Minute Knitted Gifts) was a UFO until now. I started this scarf in December 2006 for DH. I knitted half of it and then I forgot about it. Since, the weather started to finally cool down, I thought DH could use a new scarf. (He still wears the one I made him 6 years ago before we were married.) I quickly knit up the rest of the scarf in a few days and then the weather warmed up again, making the scarf unnecessary for Rhinebeck. But this weekend was the perfect weather for a test run.The no name cashmere yarn is from School Products. I think I bought it more than 4 years ago. I use to work near School Products and would go there after work to browse. They use to have bins of discounted cashmere yarn all wound up into yarn cakes. This yarn is made up of 3 thinner strands held together. Looking at their website now, I think it may be a Cashmere Boucle.
The pattern is really easy to memorize and it makes a nice textured pattern. It does, however have a right and wrong side. The edges of the scarf tends to curl in, but a good soak remedied that problem. After washing, the yarn really fluffs up nicely.Pattern: The Men's Cashmere Scarf from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts
