I finally decided to stray from my usual garter stich scarf and try something new.

I also like the way my tassles came out.  I figured that would be a nice change from fringe too.  Now I know that trying new things can be a good thing!  Grin

Ooooooooooooh, that's the same as a double seed stitch, right?  How long did that take you?  It's a great color Smiley

  It took me about 2 months, but then again I am a rather inconsistant knitter.  I kept worrying about losing count, but after a while I didn't even have to think about it.  Double seed stich, huh?  Not sure.  Anyone else know?  I just got the stich out of one of my books.

  Thanks for the compliment!  I love the color too.

RE: Moss stitch, what is it?

Here's another case where knitting terms just aren't standardized. 
In the UK "moss stitch" is the same as what in the US is called "seed stitch" (see this page for an example).  But in the US, "moss stitch" refers to something also called "double seed stitch"
Which is this:
Even number of stitches
Row 1 and 2: *k1, p1; rep from *
Row 3 and 4: *p1, k1; rep from *

I've been working on a poncho for my neice (was supposed to be a Christmas present, but are they EVER done on time!?:-)  and I've been using what the Vogue Knitting big book calls moss stitch, which is something like this:

CO a multiple of 2 stitches plus one

all RS rows: K

Row 2:  K1, P1 across

Row 4:  P1, K1 across

Very cool!  I love the color, and the tassles, AND love the look of moss stitch in general.  I know all about the span of time this stitch pattern takes, as I have abandoned a seed stitched tank top I start last year because it was SO slow going (& I'm too impatient).  This spring.  Maybe.  Very lovely scarf!

Great job.  Pretty style and color.
