My cousin requested this scarf a while ago, and I’ll admit, I was intimidated by possible design until such time it came to me and I was able to make the scarf over a 48 hour period. I was not happy with many of the rose patterns I found, so this pattern includes yet another rose pattern. I had enough yarn left over to make a hat and/or mitts. Keep in mind that if you change the weight of the yarn lower, you could get by with less; higher, you might be able to get by with the measurements above.
Just in case you are interested, here is the original art I created:
The pattern is available on my Patterns page, which may be accessed by the link above. This pattern remains untested; if you are interested in becoming the official tester of this pattern, please email your request to me. Until an official tester is assigned, I am available via email. While I condone your profit from making this scarf, I do ask that you do not duplicate the pattern for dissemination amongst your friend because I don’t think the cost of $2.50 is exorbitant. You are on your honor, as I cannot possible police this.
