  5. This is só beautiful ! I made one last week with fuzzy wool. Wore it today and boy... was this nice around my neck. I knitted this one in 8 days. A couple of rows per day. Now my husband want one too. I have lovely men-colours yarn and then I will knit it without eyelets. Leny - the Netherlands

  6. Renee-

    I don't have a video for a purl cast off. It is so simple! Just cast off just like you would knit but do it in purl instead.

    You also can be brave and do a sewn cast off. It will be stretchy (which is what you want). I know there are youtube videos on that!

  7. When starting your scarf are the 180 stitches the ones on top, or are you counting the ones on cable as well?

  12. Just thought you'd be amused, I used your pattern for a Jedi Cowl on Nerd Wars Ravelry competition. I'm very happy with the result with some beautiful handspun wool from a dear friend. It will be so cozy next winter!

  15. if i wanted to make this for a guy would it need to be wider? longer? im a fumbling knitter anyway. but i am DETERMINED to make him a gift. :) so i was gonna check to see if i needed to follow it as is or add a few. thanks.

  16. To the previous post:

    I would suggest making it wider for a man. I'd do this by doing rows 5-8 twice each 1-10 row repeat.

    Thanks!

  18. Beautiful scarf! I am determined to make one, but am a beginner knitter. Could someone please explain how to "join the round to me" - I didn't see this on Cat's video?
