Estonian lace, Peacock Tail and Leaf scarf

From the book Knitted Lace of Estonia I made this Peacock Tail and Leaf scarf. I used some left-overs from the Wide Bordered Shawl. I e 2/28nm merino. I added two pattern repeats on the width and made 44 repeats of the peacock centre. The size is about 33cm times 160cm. Instead of casting on and off with two strands of yarn I crocheted loops (wide picots?).

It was an excellent travelling knit. Though, I have to say, plain even rows aren't much fun and 44 repeats of the same 10 rows was a bit boring. It's a nice scarf though and I'll use it a lot I think.
