Yes, this was a photo of the scarf while it was still unfinished, but I have completed it!

Materials: one skein (on discount for four dollars!) of glitterspun in gold, size nine needles.  Finished scarf: 3 1/2 inches wide, almost sixty inches long.


A picture!




Edit: I don't understand why when I try to include the link for the pattern I adapted it from, it comes out very weird and not a link at all.  It's p_faux_lace_scarf_lc.html on www DOT madisonknittersguild  DOT org

No problem!  I adapted it from a pattern I found on the Madison Knitters Guild website (madisonknittersguild.com).  I included the link in the inital post, but I seem to be unable to link to it directly for some reason.  In any event, here's how I altered it to make the scarf out of one skein of glitterspun:

Cast on 18 stitches.  (Original pattern has you casting on 24.)

Knit three rows.  (Same as original.)
Next row: Knit 1, * YO twice, Knit 1 *, repeat * to end. (The original pattern says YO thrice.)
Next row: * Slip first 6 stitches purlwise, dropping YO wraps.  Now you have 6 long stitches on the right hand needle.  Cross the last three stitches over the first three and place the six stitch cross back to the left hand needle.  Knit 6. *  Repeat twice.  (This is essentially the same as the original pattern, though I explained it slightly different.)

And then you just repeat this pattern until you run out of yarn.  I used size nine needles on this project.  (I forget what size needles are suggested.)

Hope that helps!

there's also a pattern for a similar scarf in the new summer vogue knitting, which is also full of super cute shrugs.  the one in the mag isnt as cute as yours though.  the gold yarn really makes it pop - great job.
