So I finished the scarf that was inspired by The Kove's Mainland Warmer and I think it worked out quite well!
Mine is a little bit long, and after finishing the entire thing, the perfectionist in me debated ripping the whole thing to make it shorter....but in the end I decided it would be nice to have the option of being long or short. I definitely like it better double-wrapped, but I think it looks pretty good both ways!!
My final product....not bad for $6 and a few hours of work.
