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

I noticed the short rows, but there aren't any instructions for wraps and turns and also picking up wraps. Does this mean it is only turning rows?

Wrap and turn is just one of several techniques to complete short rows, this pattern is using a different technique for short rows.

I am making this scarf with the yarn featured in the directions. It is beautiful. Have one questions - it says to repeat pattern until it measures 56 in at the widest point. Are you measuring from inside or outside edge?

You are measuring from where you started to where you are now.

Found this pattern, and am looking forward to purchasing my yarn, and getting right to it. Always love new scarf patterns, and lots of that fancy wool is keeping me busy, and when I have enough done, I will be donating the majority to Homeless society in order to give someone a nice scarf, and knowing it will keep them warm. Thanks for ALL your patterns and projects someone like me can find. Keep up the good work, and if for any reason you don't understand the instructions, you tube is absolutely fantastic for being able to show you a video on almost every project, weather knit/crochet. Thanks again for another pattern, and another project I can start.

I would like to try this pattern, but is there a misprint in the guage details? 1 sts = 4 inches. Would it be 21 or 31 perhaps - guidance please!

no that's not a mistake-this yarn is big-closer to roving than spun yarn.

my math may be bad, but by my calculations.....if 1sts= 4 inches then this scarf is 88 inches wide! there are 22 sts per row, 1 sts = 4 inches, 22 x 4 =88. could the gauge be 4sts = 1 inch?

I went to the website and checked, gauge is 11sts to 4". I made my above comment on an entirely different pattern, just happened to notice that it's sitting out here on this one. Hope this helps someone.

can someone please help me?? I haven;t knitted in years--all i learned was knit and purl, and I think I can do this pattern...however, what do I do with the "unworked" stitches?? wouldn't wouldn;t they all unravel?? And what do I need six large needles for??

ok you're confusing the directions-the 6 large eye blunt needles are a suggestion for iitems that must be sewn together or to weave in ends and have nothing to do with the actual knitting of the item. when you get to the point where you stop knitting, you simply turn and go back the other way-the only way your stitches will unravel is if you drop them off the needles-you are not dropping anything off the needles you are simply knitting a short row and going back the way you came. there are loads of videos on youtube that demonstrate short row knitting and shaping.

Love your scarf. Am looking forward to trying this pattern out. It is beautiful in the colors you chose to show.
