Fan-Edged Scarf: Today's Finished Project

Today I finished a scarf. The pattern comes from BUST Magazine editor-in-chief Debbie Stoller's book The Happy Hooker. The pattern is called the One-Skein Scarf, by Denise Cozzitorto, page 101. I made mine of two different yarns worked together, Cascade Sierra (80% Cotton, 20% Wool) in a beige, and Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (same blend) in a cream. I used a 6.50mm hook, chaining 200 stitches in length.

The double thickness of the yarns seems to help the fan stitches on the border hold their shape. I made this same scarf with the Sierra by itself and it was really floppy so I just took it apart and remade it like this. Much better.
