Silver Dollar Scarf

So I decided to try a variation on the Silver Dollar Scarf, the pattern for which is found on the Fiber Flux YouTube channel. I used a variegated yarn on a sc row, and a solid yarn on the dc rows. This is what I got...

Not the best photo, admittedly but hey...

A few notes about doing the pattern like this...

First, I carried the non-working yarn across the row as I worked. That can be a bit of a pain, unless one is willing to break the yarn every row and have a billion tails to sew in later. 

But if you work the scarf longways, you don't have to carry the yarn across the row, because you can break the yarn at the end of each row and incorporate the tails as fringes. :)

Food for thought.
