I worked up to 8 repeats last night & my yarn is cascade 220 which is a worsted weight. I am using size 6 needles & curling isn't an issue for me either. It actually seems to flatten out more the more rows I do (I guess it's the weight of it).

This is a great intro to lace (for me at least) it is not as horrible as I thought & it is so great to have this thread to come back to. I love seeing everyone's progress & yarn choices.

Thanks for the compliment beebiz! It is bluebell & I love it too! Esp. with this pattern!

Eeeck. I think i am a slow knitter. I timed myself just now, and it takes me 26 minutes to do one repeat of the lace..... How fast are you guys going? I feel really dumb that im going so slow. Will take me 11 hours and 15 minutes, at this rate! ack!

I love the idea of using it as a table runner! I might steal that from you, since I don't really need another scarf

I haven't started mine yet.. I wasn't happy w/ the idea of using the kidsilk haze for it, I want something a bit thicker.  But I don't know what yet.  Hopefully something from my stash..

Everyones scarves look beautiful!

Pie, what yarn are you using? I love it

Everybody's scarves look so good! I love seeing the progress.  Smiley

Okay, I finally got the scarf going after abandoning the written directions and attempting the chart. It's my first lace project, and I've never followed a chart before except for colorwork. But I'm so glad I did because it's a lot easier! I got 7 repeats done so far, here's my progress:



I'm using Red Heart Soft Baby in Angel Print with size 7 needles. It's lying pretty flat for me. I haven't had a chance to time how long it takes me to do a full repeat yet, but I'm gonna do that.

I think a beginner could do this. It takes a few tries to get started, but it's a really good scarf to make as a first lace project. It's my frst lace knitting too.

A question: 

I've noticed that the cast-on edge tends to kinda pinch in.  Do you know what I'm talking about?  Instead of edge of the scarf looking all straight as an arrow, like the ones that are shown in the Knitty's pattern, everyone's scarf here (including mine) regardless of the type of yarn used kinda. . .pinches in (man, that creative writing degree of mine really worked out for me.  wow.)

Anyhoo, I was wondering what everyone's thoughts on this was.  Do you plan on blocking it and stretching it out to make a straight edge?  Or are you going to leave it as is?  I don't know what I plan to do.  There are some times I look at it and think that it looks prettier just the way it is, all pinchy.  And then there are other times where I think it looks stupid.  I.  Don't.  Know.   Huh

I dont know how i feel about the bend in the end of the scarf either. The ones on Knitty dont have it because they blocked theirs... Mine is a cotton yarn though so im not sure if its fixable. Can you block cotton and acrylic?
