What substitute yarn could be used for this gorgeous vintage hat please and would the tension remain the the same to get the same effect, I am in New Zealand

Hey there, Gregsam! According to yarnsub.com, a good substitution for La Boheme yarn is Bamboucle Yarn by Elsebeth Lavold, which almost has an exact gauge match at 17-18 sts per 10 cm. A substitute for Kid Merino would be Kid Royal by Alize. Check out the website for a ton of other substitutions. I hope that helps! Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Hi kkittleson, many thanks for sharing, I am a new user and Not so confident with the Internet - cheers I still want to have a go thou

the pattern is in the e book...I just bought the paperback book for $3.00 plus shipping on Alibris.com

yes! please give us the scarf pattern, too! :D pretty please with a rosette on top? :D

Try this link for the E-Book - http://www.shopmartingale.com/casual-elegant-knits-ebook.html And you can find the paperback for 1/2 the price on Amazon.

I too would like the pattern for the scarf...both pieces compliment each other.....Gorgeous.....

I would love to have the pattern of the scarf as well! Any chance you could publish that as well, please?

has anyone tried this with a different yarn? I'm afraid la boheme is out of my budget

Yes, I have used the scarf pattern with several different weights of yarn and it always turns out great. I sometimes only use one wrap of yarn though because it makes too big of a hole in some cases. It knits up beautifully. With fingering yarn, I like to double the width though. It makes it too narrow for my taste. I didn't knit the hat so I can't comment about that.

Has anyone tried this with a less expensive yarn? I'm afraid La Boheme is out of my budget.

The scarf is pattern 6 in the e-pattern book called Casual, Elegant Knits - Classy Designs for Women and Men By Dawn Leeseman, Faina Goberstein $19.99 eBook Only: eBook Instant PDF Download $19.99

Is there an individual price for this scarf pattern?

this scarf is absolutely beautiful... I hope we can get this pattern.. I just bought a bunch of mohair.. in ivory.

I would like to get the pattern for the scarf. Please let me know how to get it.

I was wondering where I could find the scarf pattern too - the set would make a beautiful gift.

So, where is the pattern for the matching scarf for this art deco hat? They are lovely. SusanCre8s

what does knit 1 tbl mean? Also, does the rose really stay in place?

Thru back loop

OK, finally found the pattern--it should be shopmartigale.com--not martindale. I finally found it by putting the name of the book into the search. You can also get this through Amazon as a book and it's only about $11.90 but you'd have to pay shipping on an actual book so it would probably wind up about the same cost. Just depends on if you want a hard copy or eBook.

Is it shopmartigale or shopmartingale? Is this available as a free pattern? Thanks.

I bought yarn for this hat today--but I'd like the pattern for the scarf--it is so pretty. I C & P the link that Member 5541644 gave but it just took me to some suggestions for Martindale (had no idea that there were so many states with cities with the name of Martindale)--cities, feed stores, Wink Martidale (anyone remember him?). Anyway, after 6-7 pages of Martindales I gave up--would love to have a direct link if anyone comes up with one.

Great pattern - also like the extra instructions for some methods I havent used yet --- thanks D

It's not a pattern but try this link for the stitches used to make the scarf. http://videotutorialsfkm.blogspot.com/2010/03/lacy-stitch-for-spring-twilight.html. Hope this helps.

this link says the video tutorial does not exist

PJ - Nice hat, but I too want the pattern for the scarf. It is awesome.

I did some research and the pattern for the scarf can be bought here @ www.shopmartindale.com casual elegant knits by Faina Goberstein and Dawn Leeseman it's an e-book download for $19.99 hope this helps

Thanks for the lead. You can find the book on DealOz.com for less than $5.

I also would like the scarf pattern. Is there anyone out there that can tell me where to obtain it?

I absolutely adore the hat pattern , is the scarf pattern available please. Yours with kindness Carmen

I also think the Vintage hat is very pretty, and I would also like the pattern for the scarf,

Lovely hat. But where can I get the pattern for the scarf? I love it!!! :)
