Thanks craftykate. I have some LionBrand Imagine that I'll try. I think I'll use a 17 or maybe a 15 needles. Does that sound right?

That sounds like it would work. I found the link with the instructions to the scarf from the knitty gritty episode. Now that I look at their version I realize mine with the ribbon yarn was quite different, but it's a pretty versatile stitch pattern.


Probably the biggest thing you'd need to change is how many times you wrap the yarn around for the yarn overs. Do a swatch and see what looks best with your yarn and needle size. Does that make sense? Like Jazz's blanket pattern you do it twice (I think), the knitty gritty scarf you do it 4 times. Other wise they are fairly similar stitch patterns. It should be easy to use the two as a jumping off point for your scarf pattern. Good luck!


Yep, it's a knit blog

wanna trade? I heart personal swaps.

It is a pretty fast pattern to knit because the yarnovers are so long they add quite a bit of length every time there's a row of them.  It got tedious though because I found it was easy to accidentally let the long stitches slip off the needles.

If you do make a scarf with this pattern, please post it - I want to see it!
