Prismatic Scarf

After buying this luscious Malabrigo Silky Merino yarn on my holiday last week,

I went in search for a scarf pattern that would do it justice. I wanted it to lie nice and flat and be more or less reversible.

I decided on the Prismatic Scarf by Huan-Hua Chye.  
The yarn is so shiny and soft.

Here's the right side...

 and the other side.

I like the way the i-cord edge is knit as you go by slipping the last three stitches of each row with the yarn in front (sl 3 wyif) at the end of each row and knitting the first three stitches of each row. 

I did the math and at the current width, I'll be able to get 70" of length out of the two skeins of yarn -- and that's before blocking!
