I would love this as a wrap.  Would it work to knit this up using bulky yarn and big needles?   Or doubling the pattern (casting on 50 stitches)?  Has anyone used variegated yarn?

heres a bad photo of mine (its very dark here), dont mind the random bit of yarn runinig through it thats just a life line ive had a gizillion false starts and Im not going to start all over again because the whole thing unwinds in my hands as i try to fix one mistake LOL 

I had a tonne of that green wool left over from another project, its DK weight so probably a bit lighter than most peoples. Im finding the pattern can also be a little difficult to see at times, hopefully a little blocking and ironing with even it out, Im just glad this ones not a curler unlike my last lace scarf!

Kadreath - Yours looks absolutely great! I put this project on hold for a little bit because I got so tired of it and beeing tied to the chart was a little exhausting. But yours has given me inspiration once again. Hopefully I'll finish tonight!

I dont think you would cast on 25- you would cast on 2x the lace (with maybe a single knit stich btwn, like it is with this one), and then the border stitches.

Finished!! Yay!! Cheesy Well I ran out of yarn so it's pretty short (27 repeats on size 5 needles), but it can still be worn as a spring scarf. I'm happy with the result because it was my first lacework, but my head still hurts from reading the chart  Wink

Here's a closeup

Great job pie! I love it!

I have had to put mine on the back burner as I have been comissioned to knit a bag as a birthday gift for one of my co-workers friends. I really want to finish this but how can you say no to being paid to knit ?  Wink

yep I got a knitting blog

Beautiful scarves, crafty gals!  Why don't yours look lumpy like mine?  I'm slipping the stitches purlwise.  Am I not supposed to be doing this?  Also, what do you think about using a variegated yarn?  I loooove this handpainted yarn by Alchemy of Sebastapol, CA, but think the pattern gets lost in all the color.  The yarn's true colors are deep teal, purple-y indigo and deep green.  (Ugh!  I'm bringing my full vocabulary to bear on the description of the colors and all I can come up with is "deep.")

i think i used the wrong yarn. i'm halfway through my first section, and it looks nothing like the picture... maybe my yarn is too fat? i don't know i'm using a sport weight acrylic.

i suppose i am going to finish a couple of sections before i call it quits and find a different yarn. i love the pattern though.

I'm using sport weight acrylic too. Mine is a bit bulkier than the photo on knitty.com but you can still see the lace pattern.
