Hi Sara! Thanks. Actually, I think the lady at the store gave me wrong number for cast one. No way can I end each row the same way *unless* I change to casting on an uneven number of stitches.
It's just not looking like anything. I'm abandoning this pattern. Maybe because the scarf I saw was done in Eros ladder yarn it made the holes stand out. I'm using regular yarn and it just looks like sloppy knitting. Bummer. I'm going to find a different pattern from HERE instead.
