All I could manage today was going to the gym & grocery store. The rest of the day resulted in my first design! It takes one skein and a couple of hours--perfect for a last minute gift.
Yarn: 1 skein Wisdom Yarns Poems Forté
Size 17 47" cable needles
Cast on 96 stitches
Work seed stitch for 4 or 5 rows (my scarf was 2" wide & 68" long). Bind off in pattern.
Add fringe to long side of scarf. I varied the fringe placement along the side slightly and varied the length of the fringe from 6" to 10".
