I just realized that both this one AND the black and white Alex scarf of mine, share the same mistake, that I personally find kinda cute...anyway, I should have put the stitch knitwise on the right needle before each Lsd but I did it purlwise and so you see those dc lines "cutting" three times every motif on its right side on lc side of the scarf....its not ugly, but I had to say that since I saw it....anyway, as you all can see, that doesnt destroy anything, it just "redesigns it in an accidental way lol....the one I am making now is made the way its supposed to..
