Finished :)

I'm so happy! It looks great! I'm visiting my mother this weekend so I'll give it to her tomorrow.

I tried to block it with pins and mercerized cotton, but I was unable to block it decently. So I steam-ironed(gasp!) the wrong side of the damp scarf (to bring out the texture on the right side), hand-blocking small extents of the scarf while I ironed so that the lace would open and the width would be constant. I'm pleased to say it looks great! And it is very soft and with a great drape!

In the same table: look how it grew! It measures 14.5 cm wide and 162 cm long.

Detail of the pattern. The true colour is slightly darker, but very close to this.

You did a beautiful job. What yarn did you use? It looks perfect for this pattern and the color is very nice.
