Knitted Katia Toledo Scarf

I saw this Katia Toledo yarn at Pipoos and immediately fell in love with it, the colors and the softness. And conviently forgot how much I dislike knitting with special yarns like this.

I needed a present for a friend and decided to knit her a scarf. When I started it was 30 degrees outside and I was sitting in the shade in the garden.

In my opinion the scarf is relatively short. I would cast on 12 or 15 stitches if I would knit it again or use more yarn.
