Here's mine - I sorta cheated by slimming it up and making it into a scarf. 





Unfortunately, the flash and bathroom mirror conspired against me, and I don't have a picture showing how long (~6 feet) it is.

zeldaf, when you made it slimmer (scarf width), how did you calculate that? I'd love to make this but wider than the pattern itself calls for.

I was wondering the same thing. I'm atrocious with math, and after seeing it made as a scarf, I think I might make a couple myself. Smiley

Amazing job, by the way, zeldaf!  Cheesy

I'm horrible at math too but I went back to what I started and it looks like there's 8 repeats of the shell part (row 2, I believe...) so is it divisible by 10? Since the starting chain is 80... I just need affirmation before I start something that I can't finish  Cheesy

When you look at the first row of the pattern, the stuff in between the *'s calls for 8 ch.  To shrink or increase the width, just chain a smaller or larger multiple of 8, and follow the rest of the pattern exactly.  I believe mine was made with ... 48, maybe?  Hope this helps!
