Hi jens2016! We recommend asking our active Facebook community for help, as well. Maybe someone over there has tried this pattern out. Hope that helps and good luck! -Kaylee, Editor of

I started knitting this tonight with Merino wool, and it looks fabulous. It bunches up a little, doesn't stay flat. Does this need to be blocked, or am I doing something wrong?

here's a pic

I am new to knitting and confused. Row five says to repeat until down to 1 st, Then Rows 6 through 9 to knit... knit what? 1 stitch?

It means knit the whole row.

I found two sites with the Fingerless glove pattern: or here:

I want the pattern for the gloves also.

I would love to knit the matching fingerless gloves. Is there a pattern for these?

Very simple to make but looks great

lovely..buying yarn for this there a glove pattern (or where can I find one)...very sweet

I dont know how to knit but i want to ! :(

I would also like to know where I can find pattern for mittens to match the scarf? You would think that showing the matching scarf and mittens, they would show pattern for both.

where can i find the mittens to match this beautiful scarf ?

I really like the scarf pattern. Next time I will try knitting Rows 1-14 three times then fill the rest with stockenette and finish of with rows 1-14 twice and row 1-9 once.
