I think it’s gorgeous all the same.
The pattern is Cinder by Jared Flood.
The yarn is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Bulky (which I happen to have purchased a ton of this fall, expect to see it again soon.)
It wasn’t bad, as far as scarf knitting goes. I enjoyed the innovation of ribbed cables, but by about the last foot or so, I was just ready for it to be done. Of course, now that it is finished, I am glad I powered through.
It’s a cuddly, strong scarf with a lot of style. All wins.
