Moya's Skinny Scarf

Do you remember this post? I promised to share a photo of the scarf once I had all those yarn tails hidden. Well, I'm finally making good on that promise a month and a half later! I actually finished a while ago, I just finally snapped a pic of Moya modeling it.

I think it looks great on her and just so happens to match the hat she is wearing that I knit for her last year with the same yarn. Those thin stripes at the bottom of the scarf are a happy coincidence - totally did not plan for that to tie in with the hat. I love happy surprises like that!

Now about weaving in those yarn tails. Terri commented and asked if I had a secret to it...sorry to say, no I don't...though I wish I did. Oh how I wish I did! I can tell you that there are a lot of great videos and tutorials online though if you are looking for some tips. And if any of you reading this has some of your own secrets or tips on the subject I'd love for you to share them in the comments. I for one would be forever grateful! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

It looks awesome and I don't see any evidence of "Yarn Tails"! I've decided that the only way around them is to have my stripes run the length of the scarf so the tails can be part of the fringe on the ends. I'm almost finished with one now and did just that. I love it but it makes for really LONG rows. However after only 24 rows the scarf is done! :-)

Moya looks great! And what fun that the stripes on the scarf add a glimpse of the pattern from the hat. Must have come out subconsciously. =)
Love it cindy!
