        Yardage noted is way short

            The pattern calls for one 416-yard skein. I used a 445-yard skein of other fingering yarn from my stash, and did not have enough yarn. Had to make the scarf an inch shorter/narrower. Aside from that problem, this is a really fun scarf to knit!

                This is really a lovely shawl when complete with a beautiful design worked into the piece by the increases. However, the yardage quoted is not sufficient to complete the shawl as written and to leave it incomplete takes away from the design. I used " Caper Sock" by String Theory which has a lovely sheen and drape. Final amount used was close to 500 yards- but certainly worth buying the second skein and completing the pattern as designed.

                      Please be advised that one skein of the recommended yarn is not enough. The pattern says one skein may not be enough due to variation in yardage per skein and that if you run out of yarn you should just bind off early, but I ran out of yarn approximately 20 rows before the end of the pattern and it really doesn't look right. Other than that, this is a pretty nice pattern.
