This scarf uses TWO hanks of Eco Wool but leaves plenty of yardage for making up a pretty pair of mittens to match. (That's another pattern coming soon!)
The scarf itself is nice and long for wrapping around but you can easily knit more repeats to lengthen it further. The hood is picked up and knit flat, then seamed at the top.
I incorporated a pretty "Lateral Braid" into this garment to separate the ribbing from the complex panels of cabling and lace. I've included a link to a helpful video tutorial on this fun and unique method: http://youtu.be/5BRvFNT7FwQ
