BeccaU - did the guage work out the same using the Lang yarn?  I've been eyeing that stuff in my LYS, as well as this pattern but never did I make the connection!  I love your scarf and may have to make one for myself.  Can you tell me how many balls you used?  And how long the scarf is?
Thanks.

PrincessJazz - because it's a scarf I didn't bother with gauge.  I used two balls - just knit until they ran out.  The yardage was slightly less than a skein of the Noro.  Total scarf length is ~ 65 inches - perfect for just hanging around my neck or I can loop it (two ends through the middle) to make it snug.  Oh - I did not block either - the width is ~3.75 inches.  Hope that helps!

Here are some of my projects. . ..not all of them came from LMKG, but quite  few did.





I posted them elsewhere on the forum and now I can't remember if it's okay to link to another thread. 

I'm an AWFUL craftster.

I just finished the Men's Raglan Zipper Cardigan in Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
A great knit that makes me (and the hubby who wears it!) very happy.  I am already thinking about making a lighter weight cotton version for spring/fall wear.  This one was knit in a bulky wool (Handpaintedyarn.com)



Everything you ever wanted to know about this cardigan (including the zipper install) can be found on my blog - http://lollygirl.com/blog

Thanks for looking  Grin

Your sweater looks great!

My wife has been debating making this one for me, and has been having a problem with the ribbing.  On her gauge swatch she's been getting a gap in one part of the ribbing when she switches from the knit part to the purl.  She also wasn't able to block it in such a way that the gap would lessen.  The sweater in the book looked like it had it a little, but yours does not.  Did you do anything special in the ribbing to keep the knit/purl transitions tight?

Thanks for your nice comment!  I did not do anything special with my rib transition.  I knit pretty tight, but I am not sure if that is what you are referring too.  I did do a good wet block on this one, and that may have made some difference in the ribbing.  I also knit continental style, which may have something to do with it.   

Maybe she should give it another try?  It is a great sweater, and you would love wearing it!

i think u get that little loose stitch between the ribbing when u knit continental because of the angle of the working yarn. I try to knit those stitch's as tight as i can... and sometime do a double wrap on my index finger for better tension.
