Woodland Scarf

This pattern is addictive. I did not take the best photos, but could not wait to show you how this is coming along. I highly recommend this pattern if you are looking for a fun project. It's complicated enough to keep you interested but not so tricky you get frustrated. It's fun to watch as the leaves emerge. There is a note on the pattern which calls the flow of the design "intuitive". I did not know what that meant until I started to catch on to the pattern. As you are completing the rows, you can just tell if you are on the right track because the stitches just make sense... you catch mistakes right away. That eliminates some frustration. I can picture this pattern in a baby blanket or even a lap afghan. It's that fun! I am glad I am making the smaller scarf version of this pattern; I think the color changes in the Mini Mochi yarn work well with the shorter rows. I think I like this pattern well enough to make a shawl version; I will have to find just the right yarn for it.

Very pretty -- love how the different colors flow one into the other.
