Hello from Abbey

Hi everyone! I am starting the Ruffles scarf, and I want to do the vintage velvet scarf too....and then there's that crochet/beaded scarf..... I love this book.

I work at a yarn shop, and we got the Classic Elite Premier yarn in, so I decided to make the scarf for display in the shop. I love how this yarn feels.
It took me a little while to get the pattern down. Is anyone else seeing that the 'spine' of the scarf is knit pretty loosly? I'm using size 6 needles, but I wonder if I should go down to 5's.

and Molly...I don't know if you can substitute yarn on the Vintage Velvet scarf. You'd have to find another chenille with wool in it,(touch me has 28% wool) since the scarf is lightly felted to give that vintage look.

    i'm using size 6 and have found those middle stitches to be loose (as well as my first slip stitches at the beginning of each row), but i figure since it curls up that it doesn't matter that much, no one will see them!

    Yeah, I've noticed the same thing. It's hidden in the middle of the spiral, so I'm not too worried about it :-)
