melidomi--i think you may have typed in the pattern wrong. i think it's CO 31, not 33... I'm not sure, can anyone double check/support this?

nope, it is 33 - the pattern is a multiple of 3 stitches plus one at one end and 2 at the other (did you forget the k2 at the end of row 1?)

I tried the pattern, but I don't get the well defined holes and "X" pattern. Instead I get, and I like this just as much, little bulbs (I think of them as berries, b/c I'm using the colour poison). I find that if I wanted to stretch out each hole I would get what you have but, that is too time consuming and I don't want to stretch the yarn. Any suggestions for when I make the next scarf?

Hmm, I have two thoughts:
1- maybe the yarn you're using is too thick/ you're knitting too tightly.  If you aren't using the Kidsilk Haze, try going to a fancy yarn store and looking at it.  See if your yarn is fatter.  If it is, go up a couple of needle sizes (and you can decrease the number of repeats in the pattern, too - say make it 27 stitches wide instead of 33, so it's still around the same width)
2 - mine wasn't nearly as defined before I blocked it.  So just finish off the scarf and then block it like so:
pin it out so that it's stretched enough to see the pattern. 
Fill your iron with water and set it to 'steam'
Hold the iron about 1" above the scarf and steam it. 
allow it to cool and dry before unpinning it.

I am using kidsilk, it was tricky at first. I think you might be right, that I'm knitting too tightly. Well, I think of it as getting two patterns for one.

Thanks for your help,

i love this scarf and now want to make one for my aunt for b-dsy/christmas, but i have a problem...

i have checked my local yarn store, joann's, and michael's, and none of them have this kidslik haze yarn.  i don't have a credit card and so cannot buy it online.  any suggestions for a substitute yarn?

thanks and awesome scarf Grin

Well, I did it again!  This time I cast on 66 sts for a more shawly version, I did it in a different mohair (because of the color) I basically used the equivalent of 2 balls of Kidsilk Haze - so like 400 yds.  Here it is posing on my swift (I love my swift!) 

It's about a foot to 18" wide, and more than 4 feet long - this yarn knitted up a bit thicker (and so made it shorter) than the Kidsilk Haze - so if you actually did it with 2 balls of that you'd have a bigger shawl.
