Thanks- I don't know what the secret is to the neat edges- maybe it's just the pattern? All is is is cast on 44 sts- RS knit, WS K2, p1, K2, repeat. So simple, but it makes a pretty stitch pattern. I think I am going to make the mittens for myself after Christmas.

What formed the border on the ends? It looks like there's a deviation in the stitches for about one row, about an inch or two in from the ends. It gives it a nice border effect on the ends.

Renna- I have to laugh- I was wondering if anyone would notice that. I made a mistake when I was a couple of inches into the scarf. The pattern calls for you to K2, p1, K2. I accidentally started the row with p1. I realized it a few rows later, and instead of frogging it and starting over, I kept on going and duplicated the mistake on the other end of the scarf!! :D

Bravo for you! Necessity is the mother of invention. Your mistake necessitated a repeat on the other end, hence, a new pattern was born!
