that looks really good. that was a really really hard pattern for me to follow, so much concentration. i ended up binding off early and putting really long tassles on it. yours looks very nice. how long did it take you? mine took like, 24 working hours to get 3.5 feet.  Sad

I agree about the concentration! I had to unknit a few times because I was paying more attention to the TV than my knitting. Cheesy I actually knit this scarf twice. The first time, I only did about 22 or 23 repeats before my yarn ran out and I thought the scarf looked too loose. Plus, the pattern said you should be able to get 27 repeats. So I frogged the whole thing and started again. Took me almost a month. I think it took me about 45 min to do 1 repeat...  Smiley

Thanks, everyone!  Smiley

How many skeins did you use and how long did that make the scarf? Thanks!

I used 1 skein and my scarf measures 7"x58.5" after blocking.

I love these! I like how slouchy they are, they would be cute to wear with leggings around the house.
I tried knitting a couple of years ago, got frustrated and picked up crocheting instead. When I see projects  like this it really pushes me to give it a second shot.


Thanks! Unfortunately, the slouchiness was unintended.  Grin They're really comfortable as bed socks though. I, too, had a lot of trouble trying to pick up knitting at first but had no problems with crocheting. When I found the videos on Knitting Help, I decided to give knitting a second try and I'm glad I did. Check out the videos. You might be able to pick it up from there.  Smiley

Yep, I'm pretty excited cos this is my first knit FO since I picked up knitting this year. It's a pair of Jaywalker knit in Felici. Details and photos on my blog post. Happy holidays!  Cheesy

Very nice.  Definitely needs a lining - maybe in a purple satin?

Yep, definitely going to add one. Was thinking of a purple satin lining as well. I'll probably have to pay someone to do it. I can't sew!  Cheesy

1) what is the yarn you used? and
 2) WHAT THE HECK IS THE LINING?

Sure, no problem.  Smiley The yarn I used was Knit Picks Shine Sport. The skirt isn't lined yet. I was wearing a slip underneath when I took the pictures on my blog.

Thanks! Yeah, I know what you mean. I'll most likely get a lining in a matching colour.  Smiley
