Astronaut // A superchunky garter stitch scarf in two colours | Countess Ablaze

So the last thing on Saturday's to-do list was "take photos of the massive super chunky scarf so people can see how far a skein goes." The reality is you get photos of me doing Death Stare. The scarf looks good though!

So the scarf. I've used two skeins of Astronaut in two colourways. Each skein is 200 grams and 130 metres and I used every inch of yarn. So yes, you can get a scarf out of one skein. For reference, I'm 5'4" (164 cm).

This next photo shows how far two skeins will get; this is why I've purposefully knitted this in two colours so you can visualise it better. We get a number of beginner knitters visiting the studio and they've found this scarf to be super useful.

This photo I've had enough for the week and need to go home and hide, preferably wrapped up in this scarf!
