Miranda Scarf

 Messing around yesterday and decided for the next pattern I would make one up. This is sort of a variation of the pattern I had called Peek-a-boo. The middle holes line up and the side holes form a pattern. It could be a diamond or an X or whatever you imagine it to be. :-) You can make this into a square or a scarf. I am making a scarf because my hands kept going. heh

So here is the pattern. It is named Miranda because I couldn't think what to call it and I asked my husband and he could not think of anything. I asked my daughter and she said I'd call it Miranda. I think she just likes that name. LOL I like it too, so Miranda it is.

I haven't actually finished the scarf, so the yarn amount is estimated. Most scarves take me about 7 ounces so it should be about that much. Anyway, this one will because I think that's all I have of this color.
