Well, it's finished and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. This is something that I will wear--even indoors--because I like wearing regular, woven scarves. The Bugga! yarn is wonderful and sort of hard to get, but there is another yarn that will work just as well if you can't find it, the Pagewood Farms Alyeska Sock Yarn. Even another nice squishy skein of sock yarn that will take up to a size 3 needle will work (I am recommending a size 4 needle with this scarf due to openness of the stitch pattern). The key is, it has to be extra special and something you will love to wear close to the skin.
Any rate, the pattern is basically ready. I'll post it soon.
The stitch pattern used in this pattern is a variation of the Indian Cross Stitch which isn't super easy to do because you triple or quadruple wrap your needle as you knit and then on your way back, you drop the wraps to create elongated stitches, stitches that you cross and knit in a new order.
An advanced beginner could definitely do this, but they would have to be very patient when rearranging the stitches on the needle to avoid frustration. What I think I am going to do is shoot a quick video later today or some time tomorrow and put it here on my blog to show how it is done in case you're interested.
I guess the nicest thing about this particular scarf is that you can wear it multiple ways and wrap it this way and that. Plus, it's a great project for that one extra special skein of yarn you've been wondering what to do with!
