i've been waiting for a picture of that scarf, too. looks fantastic!  can you tell me how many balls of yarn you ended up using and how wide and long your scarf ended up being?  great job!

It's about 10" wide and took me 6 balls of yarn (5 for the scarf, 1 for the fringe). I ended up a little pricier than I had initially intended, but considering I live in Maine where it will definitely get worn, I figure it's worth it.

Oh, I thought by hearing you and Boo talk about how frustrating it was making this scarf, I would be able to resist the temptation to make one of my own.  But now that I've seen how pretty the result is, I am *this* close to ordering that yarn.  Must resist...

Great job on everything.

tofuthief - DO IT!!!!!   It is a bit tough to work with but worth it and you get the added bonus of feeling like a real knittting bad ass for taking on a project you know is tedious and can be tough.

hi ren-girl and everyone else involved in the bourne supremacy scarf discussion!

i am new to craftster, and frankly - only joined b/c i have a question about this scarf!  (i just bought four balls of berroco/medly in the fruity color... Grin yay!)

rengirl, how did you finish off this scarf? you got the fringe perfect -- how did you tie it all together at the ends?

i am totally starting this scarf tonight!  45 stitches at k1p1 - wahoo!
thank you ladies...

when i saw the movie, i fell in LOVE with that scarf, but couldn't find any instructions on how to make it.  then i was just poking around today, deciding that i am broke and don't need to buy anymore anything and i see THIS!!!!! great job!  i remember it being a dark navy from the movie, but then i also remembered julia stiles' hair being dark brown. after seeing those pics posted by Lothruin, i realized i must have been in an awfully old/worn down theater with a bad screen!!!

great jobs on the scarves. how many stitches did you end up casting onto size 11s?

It may be a bit repetitive, but it makes for a great "mindless" project to do while watching tv (this one took the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Star Wars trilogy to complete).

tofu - boo is right, you should just do it.....if for no other reason that ribbed things are great exercises in perfecting knitting basics.

punch - it's done with one whole ball of yarn cut into about 14" lengths then divided into 12 piles (6 for each end). I just used a crochet hook to pull the tassels through the bottom rows of yarn at even intervals (I just re-read that sentence, does it even make sense?) It's just like the first two diagrams here. It's not quite as fringy as the one in the movie, but it was all the fringe I could afford.

leblanfo - I ended up casting on 37 stitches, I believe.....I wanted it to be pretty wide.

Just a word of warning to anyone who's finished with it....the Medley felts really really easily so watch out when blocking....one end of my scarf is a bit fuzzier than I had intended.

OK, I give in!  (It didn't take much convincing.)  I'm estimating that it will take me about two seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer to finish.   Wink

How is everyone else doing with her scarf?
