Guernsey Scarf

The first time I saw the Guernsey Wrap, I knew I had to knit it. Then — coincidence? — I came across some Cestari yarn in Portland, Oregon. I have purchased Cestari before in its home state of Virginia but I do not see it often in the Pacific Northwest (although it is supposedly available; I just have to look more closely).
  • Pattern modifications: One less pattern repeat, making more of a scarf than a wrap.
  • Yarn: Cestari Traditional Collection 2-ply, worsted-weight wool in Cranberry; used approximately 305 grams/575 yards. The yarn softens up nicely after washing but is not the easiest to knit with, at least for me.
  • Needles: US6 (4mm)
  • Finished size: 10½ inches by 70½ inches
As with all Brooklyn Tweed patterns I have knit, the instructions were clear and easy to follow. The pattern is charted (yay!).
