    Lovely scarf! Do you ever watch DIY’s Knitty Gritty? Yesterday’s episode was on this stitch, which they referred to as the butterfly stitch. It looks beautiful when it’s done, and it doesn’t seem too difficult. I can’t wait to try it! Your color selection is wonderful.

    okay i need to know and have no idea where to find, so ill ask: where do you get these percentage bars?

  5. Thanks!
    I’ve not seen Knitty Gritty, and didn’t know it was called butterfly stitch, but it is indeed simple to work.

    I’ve finally got around to putting the credit directly below the bars on the RHS.

    Glad to hear you’re at least feeling well enough to knit. I hope yuou continue to mend & all goes well at the dentist. The scarf looks great, and thanks for sharing the pattern!

    Lovely, thanks for sharing the pattern. Did you use the whole 284 yards of yarn?

  8. I’ve just joined my first International scarf swop – and your pattern has leapt out at me -it’s lovely! Is that DK or aran weight yarn then?

  9. Thank you.

    I used all but a couple of yards of the yarn to get that length. The measurements and photo are of the unblocked scarf—I still haven’t got around to the blocking part…! 😳

    The yarn is aran/worsted, and is actually very drapey for the weight.

    If anyone does knit this, I’d love a piccie of the finished piece.

  16. Great scarf. I am using it for holiday presents. I used 2 skeins of Red Heart’s variegated regular ply yarn and added a fringe on each end. Everyone loved it and they all want one.
