I "think" I saw a free pattern for a zigzag scarf similare to this buyable pattern here (http://www.loopyarn.com/Detail.bok?no=124).

Have I just dreamt that or is there a free one somewhere out there? :??

Go to http://www.artyarns.com/newsite/tutorials_main.htm and sign up for their free tutorials. Every few weeks or so, you'll get a modular knitting lesson. There are photos at the site to show you what you'll get.

By learning the techniques, you'll be able to crank out the scarf in no time.

MrsBear, Thanks so much for this link!! I just signed up and can hardly wait to begin the turorials!! What fun! Do you know if they begin @ lesson one, or do you just start getting the tutorial according to the # in the sequence of the tutorials that they happen to be in?

Javede, I looked around, but couldn't find your pattern.

Thank you Mer!!!!
:cheering: :cheering: :thumbsup:

That is indeed the pattern I searched for. I'm going to print it now, in order to not loose it again. With all these patterns in my bookmarks and on my PC it's almost impossible to find a specific pattern(I could have sworn this one was on a commercial shop site).

MrsBear87, I actually signed up for that long ago, how could I forget :doh:
And I got a british magazin with instructions for short rows and their different uses :oops:
Sometimes I forget about the things I have.

dustinac, that's exactly the reason why I was searching for the pattern. I'm normally an early starter when it comes to gifts(like last year I had the first christmas gift in july). I plan on making a scarf/hat set for everyone in the family, but also want to expand my knitting knowledge.
Another scarf I'm planning to do is this (http://www.helloyarn.com/irishhikingcarf.htm) one.

I really love :inlove: that zig zag scarf! I love the red and pink colors of the yarn. I clicked the link from the pattern page to see the reccomended yarn and I don't see that color. Do you guys have any suggestions of other yarns that might give a similar look?

Hello~

I just finished that Irish Hiking Scarf and the cables were really really easy!!! i was kinda worried at first, but it is beyond simple! Amy has a nice video here to demo and once you get a hang of that, it will be a breeze!

Have fun! :XX:

I decided to just play around with this today.. am curious has anyone made this? If you have made it did you have trouble with the Commence Zig Zag part?? If you are making it did you have trouble there? I've hit a snag should have known that I would!! Its just not my week to start new things :lol:

I did a little test swatch out of it. I didn't had much of a problem, but was a bit scared at the long directions.
If you want to try out something easier try out this one (http://douma.net/Karen/knitting/Accessory-Scarves/Multidirectional_Diagonal_Scarf.htm). You can see a pic here http://www.keyboardbiologist.net/knitblog/images2004/20041018_DiadominaDiagonalScarf.JPG.

Thank you I might have to this is what I got stuck on I'm not sure if I'm just not reading it right or like my teacher says I'm over thinking it LOL

At the end of the Second Foundation Triangle it says:
9 Inc, K9. (11) You will have reached the marker you placed on the cast on row
again. At this point you will have 11 sts on the right hand needle and 23 on the
left (34 sts in total) TURN
10 Sl1P, P to end.
Which I have done I now have all stitches on one needle...

Then it says:
Commence Zig Zag Pattern
1 Inc, K9, SSK, TURN (12)
2 Sl1, K to end
3 Inc, P10, P2tog, TURN (13)

This is where I have my trouble if I'm working with just those first 11 stitches then when I inc. that leaves 10 on the left needle, after I knit my 9 I won't have enough to do the SSK cause ya need two stiches.. and I thought SSK was decrease so I don't understand how they keep getting more stitches lol cause it seems like the decrease would just cancel out the inc... :?? so ummm... LOL thats where I'm at everything else went so easy for me... but of course it was just basic Inc and K and P too... :rollseyes:

I :heart: this pattern!! Although I decided after 5 of the main section repeats that I should have used a smaller needle, frogged the whole thing and started over, but it's so much fun!! I'm sitting here at work and wishing that I could be home knitting, but that's nothing new.

JLC, this scarf is alot of fun I've really enjoyed working on it after I got past the small snag I hit LOL. I'm changing colors in mine cause I'm using old yarn from several years ago and somewhere along the way of kids and moves the yarn lost its paper and I can't find anything that look likes it LOL so using the 3 colors I had to use it up.. My mom really likes the design and colors so prolly gonna be hers when I get done with it :D

I love this pattern too! I started it in some left over yarn just to make sure that I could do the pattern. Now that I like it I want to find something colorful!!!

What kind of yarn are you using? Are you sticking with the bulky it reccomends?

JLC
08-22-2005, 02:50 PM
I used the "Oceanos" bulky handspun wool from this site:
http://handpaintedyarn.com/index.php?cPath=21_55

It is so soft. I wanted to make something useful with this yarn so I could see if it would be soft enough for a sweater. It is. Now I just have to decide what color I want for a sweater.

I got some of the Azul Marino and Alphalpa yarn from this site too, and I think I'll probably make another one of these scarves with it.

I can't figure out how to do the fringe. I must be a total idiot! I've read all the instructions in all my books and they all say the same, insert the crochet hook and put yarn through. Huh? Is there a tutorial somewhere with pictures?

Here's my scarf, all finished except for the fringe. If I can't figure it out, that's ok, it looks fine without it.

The scarf looks great! I like it without fringe, myself, but if you want fringe, I'll try to explain.

Take lengths of yarn double the length you want your fringe to be. Fold it in half. Put your crochet hook through an opening in the end of your scarf where your want the fringe to be. Hook the fold of your yarn around the crochet hook and pull it through part way. The reach through the resulting loop in the fringe yarn and pull the rest through.

JLC that turned out great!!

Could you tell me how you did the last part with the cast offs? I did what I thought I was suppose to and it didn't come out right I didn't get to the other marker so then I tried another way and now I have a point from the cast off.. it doesn't look at all like yours :lol: TIA

Sorry dustinac - I didn't see this until this morning. Glad you got it figured out. I started another one with 3 different colors, but I'm not sure if I like it or not. I also started another handbag so the scarf is kind of taking a back seat to the bag at the moment. There is just not enough time....

dustinac

Thats ok JLC :D I just needed to put it up for the night I guess LOL cause the next day it kinda just hit me what it was trying to do :lol:
