FO: Woodland Collar

Here's a second "scarf" for my cousin.

Originally, it was supposed to look like this...

This is the St. Brigid's Scarf pattern that they sell at Imagiknit in San Francisco. However halfway through, I realized that what I have above constituted 2 complete balls of the Bingo Mouline. And I only had 4 balls total. And it's a discontinued yarn that I cannot find for sale anywhere online. A few months ago, I won a free pattern in a knitting blog contest that I was intrigued to try.

Enter Woodland Collar!

* This shows the truer color of the yarn.

* Hmm...cables.

* Quick bathroom shot.

It wasn't until after I sent off the neckwarmer to her yesterday that I realized I forgot to take a close-up picture of the button. I bought the button in downtown La Jolla at a sewing/fabric store that carries hundreds of buttons. Good thing I did buy an extra button. There was a really gorgeous button that caught my eye. It looked more like a butterfly shawl pin than a button, but it cost $25! Nonetheless, it was very beautiful and I probably would have bought it if it had been more affordable.

Pattern: Woodland Collar by Hanna Breetz

Yarn: Lana Grossa Bingo Mouline in colorway 815 (Green-Purple)
