Hi everyone,
I was hoping you could help with an issue I'm having. I seem to be getting the chains and the shells right in the repetition of row 2, but my ends are looking horrible. I'm afraid I don't know what to do at the ends, even though the pattern is very specific, I'm still new at reading patterns and wondered if someone might really break down what to do when you reach the last shell (when you get to the 3dc of the shell below and do 5dc's inside). When I start nearing the edges, I get confused on the pattern and that's where it's looking horrible, lol. For still being new to this, I feel that I'm doing pretty well, it's just that one part that's getting me. If I wasn't specific enough about my question, please let me know and I'll be glad to go into more detail.
Thanks so much in advance and thanks pinkleo for the pattern! I was so thrilled when I saw it, and even though I just started crocheting less than a week ago, I'm making myself learn it because I want the scarf so much!  Cheesy

thanks

Hi everyone,
I was hoping you could help with an issue I'm having. I seem to be getting the chains and the shells right in the repetition of row 2, but my ends are looking horrible.

I had that same issue.  What I did was slipstitch down the ends so that they straighten out and then block it really well.

I found that the scarf really needed blocking with the yarn I used.

Made another one of these for a friend. I found this eggplant-colored yarn and it was perfect for her, so of course I had to buy it! Fortunately, this scarf is the perfect thing to make from it! It's not perfect and there's one part I did wrong on an end that I wanted to redo, but I was just too far along to rip it out and start over (this is NOT a pattern you want to start over if you don't have to because of how intricate it is!).

Wow, yarnfail, that is gorgeous!

Here's my scarf! Well, it's not mine anymore because I gave it away for Christmas. But, I bought way more yarn than I needed (I used just a smidgen under a skein of Naturally Caron Spa yarn- a bamboo/acrylic blend- in color 0005 Ocean Spray).



This is such a great pattern! I did make sure to use a ton of stitch markers to keep track of my starting chain, but after the first row, it was a piece of cake! And, since I still have 3 skeins of yarn left, I can make another one for myself!

Gorgeous! That yarn is absolutely fabulous for a Luna scarf and it looks so pretty! Cheesy

I am in the midst of making yet another one... >.>

Thanks! And, I agree about the yarn- it really showed the stitch pattern well, and it was nice and soft to work with. I'll be starting my next one soon, I hope. I'd like to use it as an early spring scarf...
