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?

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.
