Not usually fond of bulky knit scarves but this one is beautiful. Just enough lace to make it pretty but not too holey. Love the crochet scallops on the ends too. Hope I have something in my stash to make it with or will have to go shopping.

Please explain the sl2tbl stitch. I've tried this so many times and always end up with 20 stitches instead of 19. I understand all the instruction until I get to the end where it indicates to slip both slipped stitches over. The knit 1 plus the 2 slipped stitches creates the extra stitch. Can you please clarify for me? I am a beginner level knitter.

The sl2tbl decribed is more commonly known as a slip2, knit1, pass slipped stitches over ,( sl2,k1,psso, or s2kp). I initially thought this meant to slip 2 stitches through the back loop...

This is explained under the special abbreviations, sl2tbl Insert needle in next 2 sts as if to k2tog and sl both stitches onto right needle. K1 then sl both slipped stitches over.
