I opted to block it so the sides formed scallops. The blocking wires really helped with this! In fact, I don't think it would have looked right if it had been blocked with straight sides, unless you did more plain stitches on the edges.
I really like this yarn. It's light and airy and the colours were very saturated, with just a little bit of difference in shade between the fibers of the two plies.
I've tried many times to upload the picture of the scarf in my bleeding heart plant, but it won't load. My SIL says bleeding hearts are one of her favourite flowers and they grow wild and crazy in Alberta where she used to live. The yarn is the exact colour. I had a hard time giving this one away, but not as hard of time as what she's going through :)
