FO Friday ~ Crosswords Scarf

Greetings!  Fresh from the blocking wires and pins . . . and maybe still just a bit damp . . .

Crosswords at the Coffee Shop by Karrie Steinmetz
Yarn :: Paton’s Classic Wool (plum heather, royal purple)
Needles :: US 8 (5.0 mm)
CO 11.28.12, BO 12.13.12

This is a lovely pattern.  Instructions are given for a shawl and smaller shawlette.  I knew right off that I wanted to use the plum heather yarn, but would run short on yardage.  I did the cast on and bind off in a purple that went perfectly with the plum.  And I like the contrasting edges.  I cast on for the shawl and realized pretty quickly that I wanted this to be a scarf.  So with a few modifications (one repeat of the lace chart and increased the number of stitches in the short rows) . . . voila . . . my Crosswords Scarf.
