How would I translate this to a afghan? Would it have to be knit sideways also? Thanks for any assistance you could give me.

You can go to and under patterns search for Amanda Reed and the name of this scarf is Jawbreaker scarf.

Has anyone found or recreated this pattern? I love it & would like to adapt it for washcloths.

You can go to and under patterns search for Amanda Reed and the name of this scarf is Jawbreaker scarf. The yarn is discontinued but is done with dk weight yarn 87% cotton 13% wool.

Love the pattern and colors of this scarf!! Any ideas on where I can find the yarn?

I did it using Noro yarn. It came out great!

can't download this pattern! It's really nice.

I cannot access this pattern. When I click the "Click Here for Knitting Pattern" it takes me to a page that says the Blog is missing. I really like this pattern and would love to try it..... :)

I had trouble accessing pattern too. :( I am going to try to recreate the pattern : ) I crochet, so it won't be the same, but I am also going to try to turn it into an afghan!!

Really wanted to try this pattern but could not pull it up!

looks great can't wait to try it beautiful colors

Just finished a second scarf using this pattern only with super bulky yarn and 30 stitches. It's about 5.5 feet long. For a guy in Noro tweed in shades of brown, gray, etc. Turned out GREAT too!

What size needles did you use with the super bulky yarn?

Hi, I used 11's

I am making a scarf for myself the long way, using self striping sock yarn and #6 needles on about 40 stitches. I absolutely LOVE this pattern. The texture plus added colors make it look very high quality (expensive?). The basic pattern is about 19 rows so I always make sure I can go through one complete set so I know when to start when I pick it up again.

ps - my Red Heart yarn has 280 yards per skein and I used a full one and a second one for the last 8 rows and bind-off. The scarf is absolutely GORGEOUS

I knitted this scarf as a Christmas present. 53 rows and each took 20 minutes. I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Tidal which is very pretty blues, aqua and greens. My gauge swatch told me to add more stitches and I ended up with around 240 for the length. When I cast on I did so over TWO needles (one circular and one straight) then pulled the straight one out. When I bound off I used a crochet hook larger than I really needed so the edge would be relaxed. Love the pattern, plan to make one for myself!!

Looks beautiful can't hardly wait to try it. jsi

You can find this colors on this web site.

I have driven myself a little bonkers trying to find yarn that comes close to this Matsuri--in vain. I suggest using Simply Soft in their Brites colors and trying to duplicate the striping.

Would love to make this for my 4 Great Grandaughters for Christmas, but can't find this color...Help!

Matsuri is discontinued.

Love the looks of this scarf - but can not find the yard Norn Matsuri #6 in stores around here. an you tell me where to find it.

I see that Matsuri is discontinued, is there anything that I can use in place of it.
