Denise, that is really helpful!
I immediately bookmarked this link for future reference when needed. Your post prompted me to follow suit and put a direct link to the Annie Modesitt scarf pattern, Alison's Scarf, since the one in the calendar and the one on her website are not quite identical: http://www.modeknit.com/blog/alisons_scarf.pdf
. I disagree with the number of pattern repeats in either version of this pattern because both turn out much shorter than your average scarf. So, if anyone knits this scarf, just note that you can repeat the lace pattern until the scarf is the length you want. Otherwise, you'll have a neck warmer rather than a scarf.
