I just finished this bad boy this weekend and it's blocking as we speak. The pattern is from Knit and Tonic and I used Frog Tree Pima Cotton. The pattern was easy up until I had to do short rows on the collar. I undid that collar so many times that I just wanted to just give until I asked for help from Knit and Tonic herself. I also changed the increases from YO to KBF. It was much easier for me.



Hope you like it.

by KBF do you mean knitting through the front and then the back loop to increase?  I looked on knittinghelp.com and the only abreviation it had that was close was "kfb" and thats what it said.  I was just wondering cause Im working on a yo heavy scarf and sometimes it gets a bit messy and loose and I was wondering if replacing it with this would help.

Its very pretty, you did a fantastic job!

Your Something Red is beautiful!
I kind of hated the pattern when I first saw it, but it must have been the red, because this is great.
Can we have an action shot when it's done blocking?  Smiley

Thank you. Yes it is knit through back and front loop. I think using that increase would help your scarf.

I'll see if I could get a model for it.
