Hi Marni,
Your scarf is beautiful and I love the color!
What yarn is it? Did it take you very long to do??

The link that you provided, doesn't go to the pattern, can you give it to us again??
Thanks,

Jen

Thanks and Oops... sorry about that bad link; it's fixed now.

The yarn isn't anything special: Lion Brand MicroSpun which is "An ultra soft microfiber sports yarn" and the color is "Cherry Red" and can be purchased at Jo-Ann's, Michaels, Hancock Fabrics... you should not pay more than $3.49. My finished scarf weighs 4.5oz so I used roughly 1 skeins and when held up by one end it is just as tall as me so it's abou 5'5" long.

The first scarf I made took approximately 20 minutes to knit all 8 rows of one repeat. For the second scarf (this one), I concentrated on learning/understanding the stitches more and I was able to reduce the time it took to knit 1 repeat to more like 13-15 minutes since I wasn't constantly looking at the pattern and moving my pattern marker from one line to the next. There are 48 repeats in this scarf so not including the cast on, the 8 beginning/ending garter stitch rows and the bind off knitting the actual repeats that form the leaf pattern probably took about 12 hours. Not exactly a fast scarf, but worth it!
