By my calculations, I started knitting this scarf in 2011. I’d wanted a really wide, long scarf that would keep me warm all winter, and I wanted it to be easy to make.
When the scarf reached about four feet, I ran out of yarn, and I looped it around into a cowl. I wasn’t completely happy with this and would check every yarn store for another ball of the yarn.
I’m not sure where I finally found the correct yarn. I think my Grandma might have given it to me, but I’m not sure. I immediately tore out the line of stitches keeping the cowl in place, and began knitting the rest of the scarf as fast as i could. The official completion date was June 8, 2014.
It turned out exactly the size I wanted it to be: about 6 feet long and 10.5 inches wide. Although there’s about half an inch of difference between the widths on each end, it is my favorite scarf, and I will definitely get a lot of wear out of it as soon as it starts getting cold again.
