I changed the colors a bit, using heather gray instead of navy to make it more versatile for my wardrobe (although the navy is SO cute!)
Instead of carrying the white yarn across when I got to the vertical stripes, I split the yarn into two balls and the technique was more like fair isle knitting or intarsia (though not nearly as complicated)
I changed the pattern a bit because I didn't want to tie the ends together. I chose a double triangle pattern that is normally used in ascots.
With the ascot ends, you can just tuck one side into the other and it will stay in place without any tying
Me in my messy kitchen!
My next project is already under construction. It's a poncho for my sister's birthday (don't worry she already knows about it). I'm enjoying it so far - using very nice wool (%50 silk, %50 wool) and it's a lovely fall color.
