I finally got around to finishing off the i-cord on my version of Quant, and here it is.
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden - 1 skein
Needles: Bamboo size 7
Except for the change in needle size, I followed the pattern exactly. The ending (green end) is a little weird, and I'm not sure what I think of it. You'll notice that it's not exactly a flat triangle. But, I figure that no one really sees that end anyway since it's tucked at the base of my head. The scarf itself feels kinda big. I measured my head, and it wasn't that different from the finished dimensions, but the ties don't really tie that well - it's like I have to tie part of the headscarf in too. I'm debating if I need to block this sucker. What do you all think?
So, I said I'd post a picture of what I looked like wearing it.
I admit I look a little dorky, but I don't think it's the headscarf's fault. I think that if my hair was a longer, the headscarf thing might be okay.
Just as a side note, I pretty much used up the entire skein of Silk Garden on this. At first, I was shocked because one skein is usually enough to make a hat, and here I was cutting it close with a headband. But, I realized the reason for this later - entrelac is a yarn-hogging technique because of all the picking up of stitches.
