What about using 4ply sock wool? Would that work?? (I'm trying hard to use up what I have!)
I think if you drop down a couple needle sizes, it should work out well enough to give a good fabric. Try it for a few inches and see what you think. Of course the scarf will be bit narrower than the original, but should still look fine.
Think I'll give it a try! Thanks for all your help.
how do we get it in England
Patterns on Craftsy are purchased via Paypal (you do not need a Paypal account) and delivered as downloadable pdf patterns. Nothing physical is mailed to you.After your purchase is completed, Craftsy sends you an email with the downloadable link. But even if you don't get the email, you can just go to the My Patterns section of your personal account at Craftsy.com. The pattern link will be waiting for you there so you can view and/or download the pattern anytime you want it now or later.
I have some Lace Weight yarn, would this be suitable for this project??
If you try to work the scarf in same gauge with lace weight, the fabric will likely be too flimsy and I think the stitch definition for the hearts area will be lost. To compensate, you could go down several needle sizes, but then youd probably have a neck tie rather than a scarf? Have you considered doubling your lace weight yarn to get something closer to what is called for in the pattern? That might work (of course, youd need double the yardage, also).
Would 4ply sock wool work? Trying hard to use up what I have in my cupboard.
This is gorgeous. I'm making it for Christmas for two dear friends who will appreciate "the twists and turns of life" ending in "loving friendship"! Can't wait to get started! Thanks for sharing the pattern.
You can drop my name from you list. $6.00 for a pattern? I can get a dress pattern for that much.
Somebody has to have the experience and brains to create the pattern, then has to work it a couple of times to work the kinks out of the instructions. I have gotten FREE patterns that were SO BADLY WRITTEN that I emailed the yarn company , oh 10 times for one supposedly simple sweater.I am about to sign on to buy this pattern. It's lovely. I've been knitting for over 60 years, but I don't trust myself trying to do it from the photos (which I HAVE done on some really easy patterns)
I agree it's a bit pricey for an e-pattern, but, a lot of work has gone into it, and I could never do it! So, its just one that you have to think hard about, and make sure you are 100% that you will use it!
Can finished projects be sold for profit?
Please read here for making and selling items using patterns: http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/faq.shtm#support
I had a look on this website, but nothing is mention about making or selling. Please advise? Thanks.
Here is the link to the FAQ section again. http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/faq.shtm#supportLook under the questionQ: What are your fees for making and selling items using your patterns?
would you recomend it for a beginners?
This pattern would not be appropriate for an absolute beginner to knitting. But if you are able to cast on, knit, purl, yarn over, bind off, and have a passion to knit this beautiful scarf, you can do it!
its beautifull, I like it!!!!! Mara Emma
I have a question about the WS and RS of this pattern-can someone hlp me please?Thank you Karen
What is your question?
WS means wrong side, RS means right side. hope this helps
The RS rows are labeled in the instructions. Maybe you missed seeing that? (for this particular pattern, they are the odd-number rows) As to the WS rows, they are alternate return rows (i.e. for this particular pattern, they are the even-number rows).
This was great fun to knit! I used a soft acrylic yarn & was unable to block it as nice and flat as the example, but it is such a cute scarf!
