Very pretty scarf. I've never knitted modified purl and would like to make this scarf to try it out.

The pattern on this scarf is very intriguing. I have not come across the modified purl twist stitch before and am very eager to try it as soon as I get some yarn for this scarf. I am going for the same yarn and cheery red color shown in the picture.

I thought the photo of the Thousand Mile Scarf looked beautiful, so I've been knitting it. However, the edges curl in spite of what the directions state.

Although it's too late for your scarf, I would suggest that the knitted border be done in a size larger needle, or even add a short row now and then to make it fit the rest of the scarf. For me, it's probably a matter of tension because I sometimes have trouble with the edges rolling on a cardigan or vest and have found that helps.
