When I did the swatch, I had a lot of trouble with the decreases. I'm a continental knitter, so it was harder to follow what you were doing. Thank heavens for the 30 second repeat. When I got to that part in the scarf, well, let's just say a four letter word popped out. This scarf is a wonderful project to reinforce what we learned in class. I am now doing it without the pattern. Thank you for your compliment and presenting a wonderful class.
