I was dispointed with the pattern I also would like to see it laid flat also. I tried the pattern and then gave up

I was very dissapointed in this neckercheif. When I got it finished I could not even tie it around my neck. The only way to have it stay around was to either "stick" it, which was uncomfortable or have it und twist all the time. I ended up continuing and using up the skeins of yarn but I still don't like it... maybe I can use it as a lap blanket.

I Knitted this scarf.  I loved the stitch pattern. But the scraf can out as a rectangle.  What happened?  Your picture does not show the scarf flat.  I can not see the top.

I made this beautiful neckercheif and it has admirers everyday.  One person even wanted to buy it off my neck!....

Made in Alpaca it is going to be "just the thing" when we get to -40

I am super confused.  Do I start with brioche st or garter? been trying to figure it out, but having a difficult time.  Would love to try and tackle this, as I love the look and a challenge.  Help please?

Hi - Love the pattern, but I'm having trouble with the gauge!  The website for Alpaca Yarn Co says that Classic Alpaca is a DK weight yarn, and since I couldn't find any here in Santa Fe I'm using another DK weight, Lavold's Silky Wool.  For this yarn, if i cast on 12, I get about 3 inches, not 4, and I've tried it on size 8 and 10.5 needles - so I'm wondering if anyone has any guidance on this.

 

thanks -Ivy

Thanks for the photo, Lisa, but could you double check the measurements for me, please? I'm wondering if the 31" wide at the widest point was a typo and should have read 51" instead.

As Hennie and Barb said... is there a flat out picture of the scarf? I think I understand the pattern but a flat picture would be helpful. Can that be done?

on Aug 2, 2009 11:13 AM

As Hennie, is there a picture of the scarf for blocking?   I didn't notice a rating (beginner, intermediate....) or am I not looking in the right place?   I'm a crocheter, have knitted in the past (a complete striped baby sweater set with hat, "soaker", etc so I CAN follow directions) but am wondering if this is "too much" for me to tackle.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

I was wondering if there was a photo of the scarf laid out as if to block it. I'm having a hard time picturing the dimensions and the stitch pattern. It looks intriguing around the model's neck, but I'd like to know what I'm getting myself into. I mean, 31" wide at the top of the triangle - the widest point - and then 26" from that ( I'm presuming we're making a 'T' here) line to the point? That makes for a long pointy shawl - sew up the side edges and you'd have a stocking cap (well, almost - they're 21" wide).

The stitches look gorgeous... now to decide if it is happening for myself for the fall wardrobe or for a christmas present!

very lovely color combination, alpaca shows off the stitches beautifully. A real pleasure to spin too!

Good Job Miss Lisa!
