2-2-Tunisian

Finally finished the shop sample for a class I'm teaching in two weeks. Can you say 'oopsie'?

I started this back in May with
two totally different yarns, but just wasn't happy with it. Put it in time-out for a month (or two . . . ) before deciding to change yarns for a more dramatic color variation and switch up to a bigger hook. It's hard to go wrong with two colors of madelinetosh pashmina, with its blend of merino, silk and cashmere. And these colors were left over from the Brioche Cowl, so it's almost like using free yarn.

The name - 2-2-Tunisian Scarf - comes from the use of 2 colors, 2 pattern rows, and a 2-ended hook to make a reversible 2-sided scarf. Really pleased with how this turned out.
A friend suggested turning up the ends to make pockets (folding it where the solid line of color is in the pattern.) The scarf is long enough so I'm seriously thinking about it . . . . .
