Madeleine scarf

If you are on Ravelry or flickr, the pictures have been on there for a week but now it's officially on the blog!
Madeleine Press Scarf III
Pattern: My own, based on a scarf by Madeleine press.
Yarn: 9 skeins of Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Aran in Cypress.
Needles: 6.5mm needles for the blackberry stitch and cable panel and a enormous 4mm circular needle for the frill (which I made my connecting the three longest cables together in my Denise set)
Madeleine Press Scarf I
Even though I am a knitter, I don't really own many scarves. They are rather expensive to buy if made out of good materials and I think they are really quite boring to knit but when I saw a scarf by Madeleine Press on Another Shopgirl I knew that I must knit it. The result, 9 balls of yarn later, is a really long and unique scarf that I adore.

It didn't really take that long for me to knit but I swear I nearly went mad knitting the frill part. I think it was about 350 sts in each row but it was totally worth it in the end.
