Backyard Leaves Karabella

Just a quick question here. Those knitting Backyard Leaves with the original yarn, are you all short on yarn? The pattern calls for 11 repeats for the first half, and I'm almost out of yarn. I find with 2 balls of Karabella Aurora 8, I can barely make it to 10 repeats. Anyone?

    I just finished the first half of Backyard Leaves with Karabella Aurora 8. I was on my second ball at the split, where I joined a new ball for the shorter side. I finished the longer side with Ball No. 2 and I have probably enough to finish the shorter side on the second half (I hope). I did buy 5 balls, though, so I always have backup.

    I have completed knitting Backyard Leaves and I have a "smidgeon" of yarn left. I'm talkin' here about, oh, 3 yards max left. I used four balls. I have to say, it is a spectacularly beautiful scarf and well worth it. I know yardages vary no matter what they say on the label. I just finished a Rowan Kid Classic scarf where you use two balls at once, and one was far short of the other. Go figure!
