Can't wait to see yours! The shawl/wrap is a great idea. I realized I don't wear head scarves too frequently (well, ever), so I am now making a clutch with this pattern instead. I am going to line it with a neat print that will show through, and maybe put some dowel-handles on it. I think it will be adorable! Later, I am going to buy a couple of skeins of really nice yarn and make a wider scarf with it. I don't have enough yarn to do so now, because I like long scarves. I really love this pattern, and it is so easy; I had it memorized after a repeat or two.

Hey thanks guys. I've probably got about two feet now, haven't had enough time to work on it as usual. I can't wait to see all the different things people are using this pattern to make.

And Fortune 32, I just noticed you in the Illinois thread thing, I live in Batavia!

Here's my first one, I used a leftover ball of wool, don't remember what kind. the wool kind of fuzzed up when i blocked it and it didn't do much for the stitch definition.  I think the key to making these look nice is use yarn with good stitch definition and use needles that are too big for the yarn.  This was made with 3 wraps but I'll be using 4 from now on.

I love all of the swatches I'm seeing.  I'm working on mine and am finding the pattern a lot of fun.

I started this pattern yesterday using some Fleece Artist Merino on 3.75mm needles and am AMAZED at how cool this is turning out, it's going to be a wicked skinny scarf (cause it's a huge skein for a headband only...).

I finished mine up a couple days ago, but haven't had a chance to block it yet. It curls like CRAZY, though... so I really want to see how much I can straighten it out. I'm already planning another one, I liked this pattern so much! I had it memorized after 1 repeat, it's so easy!

Mine is all finished as well. I used Southwest Bamboo, nice shades of green in it. It's really nice.

Here is mine. Not a very good pic of the pattern, but the colors are accurate.



Edited because I always mess up the picture posting.
