I really expected the directions to be more difficult because of the look of the scarf. OK. You have me hooked. That scarf is next on my agenda. I like lacey scarfs since I don't like anything heavy around my neck, even in winter. The bulky yarn goes on my head, not around my neck. This will knit up fast too. Thank you for the pattern.

This looks absolutely beautiful!! Is it ok to only make it with one type of wool though?

Hi Member 0014525, I would check with readers who have already made this pattern or on the Jimmy Beans Wool website. Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I made two of these with the Colinette yarns (ordered from yarnatwebsters.com. They are magnificent. The first as a scarf and the second as a cowl (twice as wide and with a provisional cast on so I could kitchener it together). What you're seeing above is the WRONG side of the scarf, I verified with jimmybeanswool.

its beautiful I have to make one

I made this scarf for my sister's birthday and it turned out beautifully. I did have to start over a few times because my count got messed up. The only way I was able to successfully complete it was to mark off EVERY row once it was completed. It worked for me and should work for anyone else.

Just finished my scarf. I love it! Not sure that my pattern was correct as it is not as lacy as pictured though

The picture above is the WRONG side of the scarf (hence purl bumps and you don't see the PSSO).

Where can i find the yarn to make this scarf?

This is the first pattern I have tried that is not a beginner pattern. I worked on this for several hours. I end up with decreasing stitches, so what am I missing? The decrease I am sure comes from the K2tog. So where am I missing the increase? I do the YO, I think the slip sitch is ok, unless the requires a knit too. Any ideas? I feel close to having this , but each row, I lose four stitches. I love the pattern and have some wonder fibers to knit with this.

Any chance you're missing the 2nd YO in the pattern? There are two increases and two decreases - the first YO is decreased by the K2TOG. Then, you PSSO (slip the stitch over the K2Tog and off the needle) and then there is another YO before you repeat the pattern...hope this helps.

I suspect one of two things, either you are missing the yo or you are accidently dropping them entirely-I suggest this because my daughter recently made this scarf and came over in tears because she had ripped it out and started over again too many times. when I watched what she was doing, I realized she was dropping the yo instead of using it for the next row. The yo's count for 4 stitches in the pattern repeat and you said you are losing 4 stitches.

Where do I buy the yarn?

I am excited to make this - I have some knit picks yarn - aloft (mohair and silk) and Gloss (wool and silk) that I think will be very nice..... thanks for the great pattern.

darsevents: To print only the pattern directions, highlight the portion you wish to print(excluding the pictures down the side) and before you hit "print", click "selection" and you will print only the one-page pattern instructions that you have highlighted (selected). I personally love the extra pics that show what else is available to download. Hope this helps

I love this pattern but can't seem to keep the 28 stitches needed to finish. I keep losing stitches with the k2tog then psso. I've tried 6 times and can't figure it out. Help:)))

Your patterns usually take several or even many pages to print, & there are extra pictures along the side. It wastes ink. Please condense each pattern & eliminate the extra pictures. Thanks!
