"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

I'm confused with the gauge. It says Gauge1 stitches, 2 rows, 3 inches. stockinette stitch. 1 stitch??? Can someone help, please? I've seen this on other patterns too.

I like the way drop stitch patterns add a different texture to whatever you are making. It is great with a scarf because it adds an airy feeling without giving up the warmth. This pattern is easy to follow and should work up quickly. You don't need much yarn and you have a great addition to your winter wardrobe. Thank you.

Teaching a couple of young friends to knit so happy with these easy scarf patterns. Knitting a plain garter stitch scarf can be so boring, but this scarg and the goddess lace ladder scarf and the warm winter scarf are wonderful patterns - makes knitting interesting and gives girls a feeling that they are creating something real

Where did my question go ???

Hi On the garter stitch drop scarf which needle do you wrap the yarn around two times and when you knit them do you knit through both of them ? Thanks !

You always wrap on the working needle, so in this case the right hand needle and you DO NOT work the stitches at all, on the first row you create them by wrapping the yarn twice around the needle after a knit stitch, on the next row, you are simply dropping them to create an elongated stitch, as shown in the pattern. hope this helps.
