If you seam it properly (with a kitchener stitch), the seam should be largely invisible. Even if it wasn't, no one should see it anyway. Your alternative would be to seam it at an edge.

I got my yarn, too. I thought about organic cotton, but can't afford it right now. I did go with merino, in dark brown, off-white, and a brownish-pink heather called "woodrose." Very pretty.

I've never done a kitchener stitch in my life, but I probably could figure it out.

I counted the stitches a couple of times, and I get 49, which would mean 24 on one side and 25 on the other? I think that's it.

I just realized that the yarn I picked is DK yarn, which I specifically said I didn't want to the people at the LYS, but I'm going to try it anyway. It'll mean a shorter scarf, but mneh. It'll be finer in texture, which is a plus, too. I'm using Rowan Wool Cotton in Moonstone, which is a light grey, and Wool Cotton Inky, which is the black, and Zara Extra-fine merino in red. The pink sounds like a very cool idea, though. :)

Love Rowan! Should I point out to you that you're using British yarn to make such an American scarf? ;)

I re-counted; yup, it's 49 sts wide. Haven't finished my chart to know how long it is yet. Blown up and printed out, the chart is a little hard to read, so I'm drawing in the grid lines every five stitches. Also, let me warn you, there's one piece of the grid (the middle one, I think) that's missing four vertical rows. I had to eyeball and fill them in, which is easy enough with the black and white, but a bit harder with the gray. Got my fingers crossed my estimations will look okay.

The Brits seem to really like our new POTUS, so I'm sure they won't mind. :)

I haven't had time to start knitting yet, I'm hoping I can do some tomorrow, after my appointment with Dr. Naproxen.
