What a beautiful pattern. The stitch looks easy enough to quickly settle into a rythum and finish before you know it. A perfect addition to any outfit or just a cover when you get cool sitting outside. I haven't used this yarn but it certainly looks like it has a lovely drape in the picture. Another great pattern to add to my que.

I love the look of this scarf as it is so different from anything that I have knitted before, I also like the size as it is much bigger than a normal scarf and so is more like a shawl. The C2B and C2F take a bit of getting use done to as I kept accidentally pushing the first stitch off the needle whilst trying to knit into the second but once I got the hang of it it got easier. I found that keeping the gauge looser made it easier to do this type of stitch.

this is a lovely scarf or stole/shawl not sure about the crochet part, but then I don't find any crochet directions in the actual pattern, other than instructions to use the necessary size of hook for the gauge, so I am not going to worry about it - crochet defeats me totally sigh shall knit the pattern and make the scarf and enjoy it (I hope). If I have missed something, would appreciate someone explaining it ...

Are you talking about the C2B and C2F? The C stands for cross, not crochet. Crochet totally defeats me, too. -) I love how big this scarf is because I've recently joined a prayer shawl ministry - it's perfect to make for that.

There is no crochet in this pattern, it's entirely knit. the "C" instructions are cross stitches, which are completed the same as cable stitches, you can use a cable needle to slip and hold front or back as instructed.
