What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it. You never know how it's going to turn out until you try it.

What a pretty scarf, and the color of that yarn is beautiful! I just love the feather and fan stitch.

The feather and fan stitch is one of my favorites too. Thank you so much for your comment. :)

I'm a BEGINNER. Someone gave me needles and some fuzzy yarn. This is SO BEAUTIFUL. Is this easy enough for me, or can you direct me to a bare basics scarf I can knit? Gosh I love this so much!

Karen, lace tends to freak beginners out, but after looking at this pattern I know you can do it with a little practice. When I first started doing lace, my biggest problem was ending a row with the wrong number of stitches, but as I did more and more, I started wondering what on earth had been tripping me up so much in the beginning. It definitely gets easier with practice and this pattern is a good 'starter' pattern. Start off doing a swatch if you want practice before the 'real deal' and if in doubt, periodically insert a lifeline into your scarf so if you do find you've gone wrong somewhere, it's easy to go back just a little bit instead of a lot. When getting started, YouTube videos from other knitters can be invaluable (and here, and and, and...we're everywhere!). Good luck!
