Another scarf I'm planning to do is this one.
I making christmas presents now too.

KellyK is making that scarf right now. She has pics in the General Forum.

I really love 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 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. You can see a pic here http://www.keyboardbiologist.net/kni...gonalScarf.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 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
