muguet, did you check your gauge? if you're knitting tighter or with thinner yarn you may have to use bigger needles or more stitches to get your kerchief the right size.

As it turns out, I was following the pattern wrong and making way to many increases.  Oops! Undecided

well, after i posted that i went and looked at the pattern and it turns out it doesn't even have a suggested gauge! i started making it last night, but i got a little confused with the increasing, so i did it backwards and decreased instead. i'm almost done and when i get my camera working again, i'll post a picture.   Smiley

I finished mine.  It's lilac and I might post a pic when I get batteries, but I think it's kind of small.  Oh well, it still holds my hair back.

I started making mine last night.  (finished my first project - the ribbed scarf the other night!!! It's nothing to write home about, just plain, cheap, purple acrylic.. but my first!!)

I am using some blue 100% cotton, which to me has that super familiar feel to it.. I don't know how to explain it.. Anyway, I am having some trouble I think with some of my increases.  Everything looks right on one side, looks just as its pictured on the page in the book... The other side, however, looks all weird, and gappy- consistently all up the whole side, for about 2 or 3 stitches on the outside edge.  I started over and tried keeping my tension super tight, and it still happened...  I didn't think to take a photo... I tried doing this with the big cheesy chunky yarn I made the scarf from with the bigger needles the other night and I didn't see and wierdnesses, BUT it could just have been the puffyness fo the yarn....  help?

Wonderful! I made one just last week (before that i had only made two harry potter house scarfs - one gryffindor and one ravenclaw).

Mine is blue and made from some cheap acrillic yarn but it's still quite warm - I work at Ben & Jerry's and have to wear a bandana or something of the sort at work and when i wear my cool new kerchief it keeps me nice and warm. Smiley

Hey guys and gals.

Here's my kerchief, took me about 3 hours. My mom had half a ball of this nice pink yarn left over from a blanket, so I snatched it up to make my kerchief. I've worn it to school and people are actually willing to PAY me to make them kerchiefs. Hah! Awesome!

Please ignore my expression in this pic. I'm not a bitch, honest.  Cheesy

Hmmm..I think it would help if you posted a pic. Try again and see what happens. I've tried knitting with certain yarns that just didn't seem to knit nicely...I did  this kerchief too. It was really fun, but I too have short hair and I look like an elf wearing it. Great job on all those kerchiefs, by the way.

I think I would just swell up and pop if I worked at ben and jerry's! But boy would I enjoy it while it lasted.... Smiley

My hair is always in my face and I LOVE wearing kerchiefs. So far I've just made them out of regular fabric but you've inspired me to make it my first winter knitting project (I'm a seasonal knitter  Cheesy)
