Chevron Scarf - in Amazing 'Aurora' Reviewed by Rebecca Myers on 2012-07-09
I was a pretty new knitter when I started this, and the stitch markers really helped me. I used three: 1 in the center to remember to do the increases, and one inside the garter-stitch border to remind me to change from purling to knitting. This pattern was EXCELLENT practice for several new skills, including purling, increases and decreases, and keeping track of the right number of stitches.
I agree that the curling edge is a problem (even the one on the model is curling). I had read the reviews and started with 3 rows of garter, but wish I had done 5. It would have matched the side edges. I ended it with 5, and you'll see in the last photo that it lays a lot smoother. I stopped when it reached past my waist on both sides, which used 2.5 skeins of yarn. I plan to use the rest for a matching ear-warmer, as my sister requested that over a hat.
People who saw me working on it all bragged about the pretty colors, and how soft the yarn feels in stockinette stitch. All in all, I would make this again, with the above-mentioned change on the ends. To thank you for the free pattern, I'm attaching some photos for your site.
