I love this scarf and want to do it but the person who put this up did not help a beginner thats for sure. Can you explain on each row, since there are increases and decreases, at least YF what are the # of stitches on each row that is completed. Usually thats what people would put in directions. Please add the stitch amonts so we can have some fun. Thanks Diana

One more comment - I looked all over the net for Primo polyester yarn and it seems to not exist - I was trying to get an idea of yardage per ball so I wouldn't sound ignorant when visiting my yarn shop. I guess it's by guess and by golly.

I hoped that the site people paid attention to these comments. Apparently not. This is why I had deleted this site from my Bookmarks previously. I read all kind of questions and very very few answers to help. I was looking for help determining the amount of yarn to get for this scarf ?????
