Spider Scarf Finished

I've always wanted to knit the spider in Barbara Walker's Third Stitch Treasury. Usually I think of it the day before Halloween. This year I though of it ten days before Halloween, picked some yarn out of the stash, and went to work on a scarf.

Doggy school is having a Halloween party Thursday night with mandatory costumes for the dogs and optional costumes for the humans. I plan to wear the spider scarf with a bright orange turtleneck. Not exactly a costume, but certainly Halloweeny.

Pattern: Basic Seamen's scarf, 36 inches long. Spider is from Barbara G. Walker's Third Stitch Treasury in a tutorial on twist stitches.

Knit at this gauge in this yarn, the spider is about 5 inches long.

Yarn: Opal UNI-Solid, a fingering weight sock yarn.

Needles: #2

Gauge: 7.5 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch

Hey, I'm a relatively new knitter just starting on patterned stuff, and I'm feeling ambitious! I'm wondering if you'd be willing to send me the spider pattern as well!
