How many skeins did it take you to make this scarf? (it is really expensive!)  and what size needle did you end up using?

Ok, its quite expensive to me...it was Blue Heron Yarns bulky chenille and it was $32.00 for the hank.  Thats all it took to make the scarf.  Thank goodness  Smiley.  Its really the most expensive yarn I have ever worked with.  I make up for the cost of this by making some things inexpensively like this poncho that only took $6.00! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9935.0 Anyway...it is such a silky beautiful yarn but it is quite delicate and I'm sure there are many great substitutions out there for the pattern.  I do think the pattern would lose some of its appeal if its done in a solid color though. Oh and I used size 9 needles...the next one I make I will use size 8 because I prefer a tighter knit.

Ohh... Blue Heron!  I have a skein of cotton from them that I just stare at joyfully...  I've thought of making a feather and fan scarf out of it, but it's so pretty, I'm happy just to stare at it for now.  Smiley

I've been tempted by this pattern for awhile! i love the yarn you chose, it looks really even. Did you block it? I just knit up a little swatch to see how the pattern works- here's what I came up with: (used Noro Kureyon, limited leftovers  Undecided) I think it looks better a little wider...

I like it a bit wider too and I did need to block it because of the yarn.  I tend to have very even stitches but this yarn wormed a bit.  I have seen this knit in Kureyon and it is perfect for this pattern.  It REALLY shows off the diagonals...I just wanted a softer yarn.  Yours looks fantastic!

Can you tell me how you blocked it? I am sooo bad at finishing my knit projects, which is why I tend to stick to the smaller stuff. I am planning on getting some Noro Silk Garden to do this pattern- hopefully today! I haven't knit that kind of yarn before, but I'm hoping its a little more even than the Kureyon (lots of thick/thin variations).  Smiley

For the yarn that I used...I just wet it (kind of heavily) with a spray bottle and laid it out on a long towel in the shape that I wanted it to be...you know with the edges and ends all straight.  I put it on my bed with a ceiling fan on and it dried during the day.  For this it worked great.  If I am doing something that needs more shaping...I use a towel again and pin it in place with large straight pins.  If you are needing more information than that, I am sure there must be a post on blocking on this site somewhere.

knitoramamomma, your FOs are always so great!  I saw this scarf at my LYS and it looked so complicated, but now I might have to try one. (I *heart* scarves!)

i want to try this pattern, that scarf looks very cool, but the part of the directions i don't understand is "Inc-knit into front AND back of stitch". Now I can knit into the front of a stitch, and I can knit into the back of a stitch, but I don't know what it means to do both on one stitch.
