Hi there, magazine's on the other side of the room but it's the same one that has the Ruffle Scarf in it. I was wondering if anyone has tried this at all? I've been on it for a while now and it's getting a bit confusing now.

Essentially, it's supposed to be worked in one piece and divided up for the left front, right front and back, but I just can't see how it's going to happen. The bits of the pattern that confuse me are quite big, so don't want to hit you guys with a wall of text before checking to see if anyone else has done it :-)

Argh! I just keep looking at it and wondering how the hell it's supposed to work. Damn patterns....

Anyway, hope someone can help,

I think I got it - but I ran out of yarn!!!!

I followed Hildie's advice in her signature, 'trust the pattern' and kept going, and it seems to make sense now. I hope. We'll see.

I've emailed the girl I got the yarn from in the hope she has some more (it's hand-dyed) but if she doesn't, she has some of the undyed stuff and I can dye the whole lot purple.

It's a really pretty pattern, hope it works out.

Ainee - it's actually from an old one (2005) - http://www.interweavecrochet.com/images/projects/pirate.jpg
Made out of big marguerite clusters, which I'd never done before but are easy once you get going :-)

Got an email back saying she's out of the country til the 13th, so won't know til after that *cry* So I've put it in a bag and am getting on with my stitch diva cardi wrap with my own hand dyed silk :-)
