Edgy scarf

This scarf was part of a challenge run a few years ago by Rowan wools in which knitter/crocheters had secret pals who they knitted something for. The theme of the exchange was edgings and finishings. This is the scarf I made for my victim/buddy Donna.Since then, I have learned that to get the scarf identical on both sides, you have to knit it in two halves then graft it together at the neck a la Breezy!
