Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have not done it yet, but by reading this pattern, the straight edge is the decreased edge and the other side should look slanted. ( going diagonal ) This is before the wrap stitch comes into play, around the first part of the pattern. You are right both sides are straight but the pattern is not. The pattern is changing direction so you have one edge that is straight and the other side is the increase edge. ( slanted) Now, if you have holes in between, if it is in the middle somewhere in your scarf, you might have dropped a stitch or so, ( missed stitch ) if you have holes on the edge it is because your wrap stitch is incorrect. Hope it helps. I also want to make this scarf. Can't wait.

Great comments. I too have holes where the wrapped stitches are. I don't understand how I am doing them incorrectly. Any advice is welcomed!

The straight edge in this pattern is the edge without an increase, the increase side will be angled because the increase is only on 1 side. As far as holes on the wt this is a common problem with this stitch, just tug on the yarn when you make this, in other words change your gauge, make this stitch tighter than the others on the needle. Hope this helps someone. Happy Knitting

Which edge is the straight edge? I have two edges that are straight??

I am knitting the diagonal striped scarf. Two needs of help: 1. which edge is the 'straight edge'? 2. does 'yf' and 'yb' mean 'yarn front and back'? Thanks, Suzy H.

i've knit 3 sections of this scarf and end up with holes between the sections - can anyone help? i really want to make this scarf! thanks!

I think that is how its supposed to be

I can't see your reply to this problem and I would like to know because I want to knit this scarf, Thanks!
