Except for loosely tied (above), it will probably require a pin to keep it on as it's so fly-away light.
The yarn I used is Loops & Threads Woolike (fingering weight) in the colors Denim Blue and Charcoal. If I were to do this again, I'd reverse the order of the colors. The widest end of the scarf is the most prominent, and I would have preferred to have that be blue now that I see it finished. But there are all sorts of ways to wear it to get the blue to show so I'm happy enough.
I've heard some mixed reviews on Loops & Thread worsted weight acrylic, but there seems to be a fairly universal appreciation for this fingering weight acrylic yarn. It is soft and easy to handle. My favorite way to use it is to double it and make a squishier and loftier fabric - I've made a number of thicker winter scarves with it, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it again on a lightweight scarf or lacy summer shawl. My only complaint about this yarn is that I wish it came in cleverer colors, but even more than that I wish it came in heathers. If they expanded their colors and/or made this in heathered colors I'd be over the moon in love with it. As is, I can't recommend it enough. In my opinion...anyone who has uses for a fingering weight acrylic yarn needs to at least sample this.
To my knowledge Woolike is only available at Michaels and unfortunately they never seem have it in stock on-line, and when they do they require it be purchased in bundles of three. So, if you want to try it out, visit your local Michael's store. It costs 2.99 for a 3.5 oz skein of 678 yards! Seriously...I don't know how they make money on this yarn. Use a 40% off coupon and it's almost embarrassing how inexpensive this yarn is.
Well, enough of my going on and on about Woolike yarn. While I have permission to post pictures, I'm thinking I can't really share any other details about the shawl. Hopefully the pattern will be posted to Ravelry soon. I will link to it then.
Now, if no one minds me indulging...I couldn't seem to stop taking pictures:
Can you tell how happy I am to be done with this?!? And I'm actually pretty pleased with the scarf. Can't ask for any more than that!
