I had a great time with this scarf; with the lightweight yarn, it doesn't work fast, but the pattern and construction were interesting enough to keep me from getting bored. I see that some folks think the pattern has errors, but I found that every time there was an error, it was because I had counted something wrong or done something on the wrong side of a stitch marker. I found it *really* helpful to keep track of how many stitches needed to be on each side of the center marker; since the pattern is an odd number across, the first half is a smaller number than the second half. Once I got those numbers firmly fixed in my mind, errors were easier to catch soon enough to correct. My only complaint about the pattern is that the largest size is none too large for an average-height man. I could actually have made it longer and it would have been fine. The yarn is a perfect match for the pattern! No, it's not super plush on its own, but at this light weight the scarf overall is drapey and cuddly and soft. My husband loves it and remarks about its softness every time he wears it. I chose the Shaela Heather color and it's beautiful in person. Browner than most grays, but still gray, and the heathering is subtle but gives a really nice depth. I've included a photo of the ending point as well as the beginning point; I may re-block it to make the pointed edges pointier.
