I love this scarf! I just put it on when I finished it and walked around the house singing - I Love My Scarf... I Loooovveee My Scarf! LOL! It is called the "Jawbreaker Scarf" (pattern on Ravelry)... She did it in a worsted weight yarn I believe. I used a colorful sock yarn and a size 9 circular needle. It is a very easy knit and can be made bigger if you want. Mine turned out to be six inches wide and 70 inches long!

I love this pattern. It is called the "Lacey Baktus" (pattern on Ravelry) - altho it could be lacy instead of lacey.... I can never remember. Anyway.... I didn't care for the yarn I chose for it. I didn't like the texture of it. But I did like the color.... So I kept on knitting away. And as time passed, the yarn texture grew on me. Too bad this one isn't for me... It will be given away at Christmas time... I have, however, started another one for me using Koigu sock yarn in a gorgeous orangey/yellow color! When I get a bit more done on it, I will share it with you here!

This is my "Jaywalker scarf" (pattern on Ravelry)... Or at least this is what it looked like when I took the picture. I messed up the scarf after that and had to start over - aghhhh! Anyway, she used six different colored skeins of Koigu sock yarn. I decided to just use the two different colored skeins I already had here at the house. For one, switching back and forth with two colors is all I can handle. And two - six skeins would cost about $90.00 or more! With a bout of double vision (still going on) - I'm not knitting as much - and when I do, it is for short bursts of time during the day and evening. But then again, slow and steady gets the worm! It doesn't help though that I had to start the scarf over again!!! Oh, if you decide to knit this, make sure when you slip the two stitches, slip them together (at once)... Otherwise I found (or maybe it is just me) that the holes and little loopy rows don't match up....
