I am in love love love with the shawl pin. After passing one up at Stitches South earlier in the spring,
I saw another one this summer during a trip to Asheville, NC and snatched it up without hesitation.
Modifications: I made the scarf longer than the instructions-a full 72 inches. I wanted to be able to wrap it around my neck and loosely tie it in the front. I also went with a smaller needle size,(size 3) which reduced the width by a 1/2 inch.
