Hey! I'm so glad this thread got woken up again!
I kind of lost motivation on the lost in translation scarf when the thread died, and I ended up switching to other projects... I'd be happy to post the pattern I made up, and/or to start a knit along for the scarf!!! Or maybe someone could post the pattern from mother of purl, and we could all knit along to that? That might be stealing though, but I live in Norway, so it's not that easy for me to get the book, I can't get it at the library here...

A-HA!  What a great excuse-the living in norway thing-that's a good way to get around the posting the copyrighted pattern... not that i think you're lying but, that's perfect!  I think the one you did is very pretty, i'd be happy to do whichever one...

Yeah, I'm afraid we can't post the pattern from the book. It would be a violation of copyright and could get Craftster in trouble.

I thought SolidKnapp's pattern looked great. There's no reason we can't all  knit-along with slightly differing patterns.

I just bought it "used" on Amazon for $10.99. Even the new price is only $13/14-ish... since my library didn't have it!

So does anyone have some alternative yarn ideas for this scarf?

I've gotten away f/ this thread for a few days but, as soon as a pattern is decided upon, i will go with it-and yeah, yarn subs would be good, too.  I was thinking of using the trusty wool-ease...

My book arrived SO quickly! Since the pattern calls for Rowan Kid Classic, I decided to check out the description on the Rowan site:

Use with any pattern calling for a worsted weight wool yarn!


Now, List Price:  $8.95 for Approx. 151 yds is a wee bit pricy, so I was thinking of checking Knitpicks... and Andean Silk / Andean Silk Twist seems like a really good sub in terms of softness and weight. And it's a nice price: 96 yards for $3.29/ball!  Cheesy

The content is a little different.
Rowan is: 70% Lambswool / 26% Kid Mohair / 4% Nylon
Andean is: 55% Super Fine Alpaca / 23% Silk / 22% Merino Wool

There's also: Wool of the Andes
Content: 100% Peruvian Highland Wool
Amount: 110 yards
Your Cost: $1.79 / ball

There are five bazillion colors, and it's really inexpensive! But I don't like wool next to my neck...

I'm trying to find a yarn substitute that is really soft and fluffy. I guess a visit to the LYS is in order.
