Entrelac Scarf Progress, Part 8

Currently, it measures 74 inches (188 cm) long. Approximately. 

(It's difficult to get an exact measurement because of the way the top blocks are staggered, plus my tape measure only goes up to 54 inches. And do I stretch it or let it rest? But as this isn't a fitted garment, approximate measures are acceptable.) 

Sister-in-law requested that the scarf be 8 feet (2.4 m) long. So, I've got about 2 feet (60 cm) to go. 

I haven't shown you the back yet. There is a "right" and "wrong" side to this stitch pattern (or "public" and "not public" sides). 

So, it's getting there. Slowly. 

(I think I found my next project. I need The Exasperation Hat in my life. But fair warning: don't click that link if you are offended by a certain swear word that starts with F. (Yes, that one.) But I will finish this scarf first.)

  4. The scarf is so cool! It is now taller than you are. Unless you're way taller than I think you are.

  5. That is going to be such a warm scarf. Would have been perfect for my years living in Kansas when I had to walk north against the awful wind. As for the hat, well, hmmm.

    1. The hat only appeals to a certain sort, I know.

  7. Do you know why SIL wants such a long scarf?? Looking good though! Looked at the hat. I could see there would be times where wearing a hat like that would be super appropriate :)
