Ene's scarf

Hi, has anyone made the Ene scarf? Reading the directions totally confused me; I'm not much good with charts! They just totally stopped talking in English as far as I could tell - those instructions were written in some strange, foreign language, maybe Klingon? :-) Any help appreciated! Thanks, Maggie

    I have started this project, with the yarn called for in the pattern. Let me know exactly what kind of help you need with the pattern, and I will try to help! - LisaB

    As Lisa said, we need to know where you're getting stuck so we can help.

    If you haven't done much lace knitting or worked with charts before, this might not be the perfect first-time project for either of those techniques, especially because Ene's Scarf is worked from the bottom up and starts with a lot of stitches on the needle.

    Maybe starting with a scarf project that begins on a few stitches and increases as you go along would let you build up your confidence, and wouldn't represent as much to rip out if you needed to restart a time or two.

    Evelyn Clark has designed some great lace scarves and shawls for Fiber Trends that might fit the bill. Anybody else on this blog have a good introduction-to-lace-scarves project to suggest?

    I just started "branching out" from the new spring Knitty. It's fairly easy and has both a chart and written instructions. It helped me learn to read a chart when I had written info to fall back on. Kind of like training wheels!
