craftygrrrl is the winner! Yay for craftygrrrl.
I loved hearing your guesses. My favorite had to be Joan who asked "Is it a squid?" I might as well call it that, because I honestly don't know what to define it as. I think basically it's a scarf. But it has crescent shaping done with short-rows, which puts it in the shawlette camp. Yet, its point is just 8.5" at the back of the neck. So it's a scarf?
It's certainly petite and pink.
I have plans to photograph this on my lovely friend Kristin (who has rust colored hair!) next week at a beautiful park in downtown Portland. (Honestly, I'll wait while you go look at that park. Let the pictures go by for a minute. It is my favorite park in all the world.)
