It was fun to learn a new technique in making this scarf. It's done in short rows and knit continuously, not pieced together at the end. The yarn I used was Artyarns Supermerino, which is a lovely, stretchy kind of yarn that is hand-dyed.
The pattern is not free, but you can check the Artyarns website at
http://www.artyarns.com/newsite/patterns_main.htm to find out where you can purchase the pattern and yarn. There is a similar scarf on their site that is a freebie. They will email you the pattern if you join their Yahoo group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/multidirectional/
Note: This is not one of those mindless projects that you can do easily while multitasking!
