I know there's a huge thread about this book, but the posts about the scarf were from way back, so I thought I'd make a separate post.

Those who have made this scarf using Alpaca Cloud from KnitPicks, what size needle did you use?  I tried the size in the pattern (10.5?), and it seemed too loose.  Any suggestions?  I'm new to knitting, so I don't have a huge supply of needles to test with.

Thanks in advance!

It doesn't matter what size needles other people have used, you need to figure out what size needle YOU can use that will get the correct gauge. I don't have the book in front of me, but the pattern list how many stitches per inch you should get - the needle size is just a suggestion. If yours is coming out too loose, just try a smaller size needle until it comes out right. Of course, this is a scarf so gauge doesn't matter all that much - if you'd like the holes to be bigger then, by all means, use larger needles than recommend. Just be aware that the scarf will also be longer and wider when finished. Hope that helps!
