Snowflake, I saw that over there and had to try it. I did one in something from Hobby Lobby called Decadence. It's really pretty yarn but the scarf is really heavy! I started with a turquoise/aqua color and ran out so the last row and the bind off is green. It looks good, but like I said, it's heavy...as in weighing a lot! The second was sock yarn and it's not heavy at all! It's a lot smaller too. Anyway, aren't they fun!? I was really glad that Rachel shared this pattern!

I'm in the middle of casting off my ruffles scarf.. and so far it's looking AMAZING.

I'e knit it up in fleece artist mohair on US 11 needles and it's awful purty - lightweight too...

Thanks agian for pointing us to this pattern and showing us your great scarf!

 I used Magnum 8-ply yarn for the scarf.

to make it less fluffy, you can increase every 2 or 3 stitches, instead of every single stitch.

I heard some knitters complained that theirs are heavy too!  I used 8-ply yarn but it turn out to be ok.

 Huh I don't understand what it means by "Knit into front and back of every stitch"...  Sad I am stupid... (;_;)

goescrunch...I found this a bit confusing too.  It is explained here

http://www.fiber-images.com/Free_Things/How_Tos/how-to_knit.htm

with pictures under "increasing".


Ms. Snit...I'm casting off too.  Yay!  So much fun (clearly I don't get out enough).

*ahem* Clearly I don't either!  Casting off was great fun! 

When you're told to "knit into the front and back of every stitch" you're really being told to "increase1" for every stitch.  I'm sure if you find info on the inc1 it will make more sense.

BTW, because I only used size 11 US needles, my scarf was a teeeny bit short to wrap around the neck.  It has since become a much loved and munched on kitty toy.  (bells may be sewn on later to add to the insanity)  I know, it's not the best use of pricey mohair, but what the heck, it was leftover from another project!

That looks awesome snowflake!  Yours looks so light!  I just finished mine in much heavier yarn...



I'm so happy with the way it turned out.  I was worried that a finished scarf in pink wool would remind me of intestines (don't ask), but it actually reminds me of the last dress Audrey Hepburn wore in My Fair Lady.

Thanks for posting the pattern here!
