Im going to drive everyone crazy with my incessant questions  Roll Eyes Sorry!

I was working on the RIGHT EDGE TRIANGLE bit, but where?  I started doing it where the blue square is, but as it tapered to a triangle i figured it was the wrong spot and then ripped back. Am I supposed to do that triangle part on the bottom right? It doesnt look like there enough room.  Grrr... I find this pattern is frustrating the bejesus outta me. Sigh. I will push forward.. with help from all the great Craftsters who keep answering all my questions  Grin


I blame it on the bunny....

You are doing it right.  Just finish up the 'blue' square part.  There will be enough room at the bottom right edge for the triangle  (its not where the red arrow is or the question mark...its on the other side, where there are three stitches in brown...you pick up the right edge triangle along this edge)....after this it will all come together.  It really does appear pretty wonky until you get past this part.  You'll see the scarf start to take shape soon.

with the wrong side facing you pick up 10 stitches along the blue square and follow the pattern! it's looking good so far! Just pay careful attention when it tells you how many stitches you should have on what needle to make sure you're on track

I finished one in Noro Kureyon about two weeks ago and got fed up trying to take pictures of it. The colours never came out like they are in real life.

I scanned it and they are a bit more lifelike.

I did have trouble at first with where to pick up stitches and which direction to knit in, but apart from the odd hole where i didn't pick up the stitch close enough to the next bit, i think it turned out okay.
It really does improve after the first go at each section, becuase then you have the previous rows to refer to while you read the pattern, and it starts to make sense. All that said, I still had to refer to the pattern sometimes even after knitting tons of it, just because it confused me which bit of it i was on.
keep at it! (and well done for doing it in two colours. i couldn't be bothered changing the yarn every block so i cheated!)

i used just shy of three balls. Its easily long enough for me (im 5 foot 4" tall ). i would have used all of the yarn but some colours were just randomly knotted onto the wrong colours, so i had to break it and find the right color on the next ball. i believe i know why Noro do this annoying thing. they have too much orange yarn and like to surprise you with it randomly throughout the ball. (i got almost a third of a ball of orange yarn!) Also they spin all the wool in a big haystack so thats why there are so many twigs and bits of crap in there. Its beautiful though, and loses the scratchiness once you block it. i used shampoo to rinse mine to block it and its soft as anything!

Oh that is great advice about the shampoo I'll have to try that!  What kind did you use?

I just finished my Danica out of 3 balls of SWS in natural crimson (which thankfully was enough because I can't find this color ANYWHERE besides the time I bought it).  I'll def post pics a little later.

It was Tresemme for colour treated hair...my hair is exactly as scratchy and dry as Noro...lol

So, I just started mine (in SWS navy), and already there is a problem.. I think.
After row 17 I've knitted 12 sts. That leaves 8 sts for the next triangle.. but, row 15 says to knit 9. So, how do I knit to row 16?

Do I turn after row 17? That doesn't make sense to me.

I think I've messed something up.
