What are you most proud of? I almost gave up on this project after failing to get gauge three times with my usual throwing method of knitting. Then I saw the lesson on Portuguese knitting and decided to try it with this scarf. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a knitting pin! Yes, it's possible to knit Portuguese style with the yarn looped behind your neck but it is so much more comfortable with a pin. As for the scarf pattern: you either need the max amount of yarn the pattern calls for or a tight tension. If you're not a naturally tight knitter, buy more yarn or try the Portuguese method.
