Has anyone tried making this scarf yet? I'm having the worst time trying to get it right. I got through the chain and did the base row but I think it's backwards when I look at the picture. When I'm done with it, my stitches fan out like an open accordian fan because it says to put the 3 tr, 1 ch, and 3 tr again all into one stitch. Can that be right?Huh Or do you put them in 7 chain stitches (not just one)?

Also, row 1 seems screwed up to me as well. it says to yoh and then insert hook into the first tr and draw another loop through. Once you do this for 4 of the tr from the below row, the directions say you will only have 4 loops on your hook but I had like 9! The one I started with plus the 8 I added by yarning over AND pulling a loop through for each stitch.

Help PLEASE!!! I love this scarf and really want to get it to work!

Thanks,

Kim

I love this scarf too!!  It's gorgeous!  When I went to the Nurhanne site to look
at the stitch patterns there, I saw that she uses British crochet terms.  (It's the Harlequin pattern here http://www.nurhanne.net/filatim/crochet/p2.html  I believe.) 

So I think this pattern will need translating into American terms (unless you usually use British terms.... in which case I'm not a good enough crocheter to be able to tell you where you might have gone wrong!  Undecided)

To see a chart comparing British and American terms, you can go here

and click on the Crochet Terms Chart link.

Hoping this helps, and I'm glad you posted your question because it made me check!!   Grin

I'm still lost! The terms that the pattern uses seem to be the same for british and american. I just think the counting is wrong or I'm just interpreting the whole thing wrong. I think the wording just isn't clear enough for me. Abviously it's me that's not understanding it.

But if anyone else does try this, please let me know if you get it to work correctly. I did send her a not on her blog so I will see if she responds.

Thanks!

I'm sorry you're having such trouble...it's so long ago that I can't really remember  how to explain it, but I know it's basically a big repeat of a stitch called Catherine's Wheel. Maybe if you found another set of instructions for it it would make more sense.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

I made two of these using the pattern. And I used it assuming it was American terms.
Where precisely are you having troubles?

I do recall it looking weird after the base row, but I worked through it and it came out fine.

As for the yoh, you're basically doing part of a double crochet, but leaving one loop on the hook each time so that you can thread them together into one stitch.

Does that make sense/help?

Beautiful scarf, myloveasdeep!  The color and design are so nice.  Thank you so much for the pattern!

And thank you for the links saralea.  It is written with British terms and needs to be converted for those used to using U.S. terms.

Has anyone tried making this scarf yet? I'm having the worst time trying to get it right. I got through the chain and did the base row but I think it's backwards when I look at the picture. When I'm done with it, my stitches fan out like an open accordian fan because it says to put the 3 tr, 1 ch, and 3 tr again all into one stitch.

How's it going Kim?  If you're used to using U.S. terms, be sure to write over the terms to avoid confusion.  The first row does fan out and you do work the (3tr, 1ch,3tr), or in the U.S., (3dc, 1sc, 3dc), into one stitch.
 
Then, like foreversandals writes above, you do partial doubles by doing a Yoh, insert in next stitch, draw up, Yoh and draw through 2 on the hook, each time leaving 1 stitch on the hook and repeating until there are 4 stitches on the hook and then you Yoh and draw through all 4 to complete.

I hope that helps.  Have you figured it out yet?

Are you sure its in British terms?
I worked it assuming it was in US terms and it worked out perfectly for me.

Hmmm....sorry I overlooked your earlier post and contradicted you, foreversandals!   Embarrassed   Now that I think about it, I guess I wouldn't put any money on it being written in British terms.  Converting it to U.S. was just the only way I figured I'd be left with 4 posts on the hook.  Now, I'll have to try it like you did.  It must work either way?  The U.S. conversion just ends up more compact?

It does work either way!   Shocked  I worked the pattern like it was written for U.S crocheters and then I worked it like it was written in British terms and the only difference in appearance is the width of the rows.  Interesting!

And, now it finally occurs to me, (Doh!), to ask you, myloveasdeep,  if you wrote your pattern in British-anese, or in U.S.-anese?
