I'm Back
Hey guys, I created this account here about a year ago I'm a beginning knitter and my project was a Tom Baker Dr Who scarf.

Well after a bit more than a year and I've finished it and thought I'd share a pic of the final outcome.



Thank you to all those that offered guidance and support.

Probably 13 feet. I've not measured it with tassels, but the pattern I was following stated about 12 feet and I followed that loosely.

Thank you all.

I'm already working on another there are a few issues with this one I'm not happy with and I'd like to see how a second would turn our given what I learned on the first.

One thing I'd like to work on is when you come to the end of some rows and it seems you've got a bit of extra loop to work with, I need to figure out either how to hide those or get rid of them altogether.

Impressive!

For a more even edge, slip the first stitch of each row as if to purl and knit the last stitch in each row.

Just make sure the yarn is in the back after slipping the stitch to knit.
