Scarf in progress

The color is totally not what I expected - I thought it was going to be a dark creamy sort of color*, but it's holy ORANGE, batman. Not a color I can wear so I think this is going to be DH's new scarf when I'm done. The pattern is based from a couple of different dishcloth patterns I found and played around with. It's come out rather interesting, it has a woven look on one side and a blocks pattern on the other. Not bad for guesswork.

* - monitors not be trusted. I got a sample card of this yarn and I forsee my sample card collection growing by leaps & bounds so I don't end up with the wrong color again.

ETA - I got the pattern written up, anyone who wants to see the PDF click:

b'elf. of course, let me work it out in my head a bit and get it on paper and I'll e-mail you.

Puddikat, yes, it's coming out very soft and warm. I love the yarn - it's the color that was a bit of a shock!

I agree with Nige. I love the orange.

I need to call knitpicks about getting some sample cards. if I'm going to make Hogwarts stuff, I'll be seriously pissed if I order yarns and the colours are wrong.

Lovely pattern. How hard is it?

YH, it's very very easy. It's all just stockinette stitch and reverse stockinette, with a garter stitch edge. If you can knit and purl, you can do it. Remember, I've been knitting for even less time than you :-). The one advantage I have had is my years of crocheting - I knew how to read patterns and how to manage tension pretty well already so I had a bit of a leg up there.

As for the sample cards, here is the link you need: http://www.knitpicks.com/tools/itemid_80225/tools_display.aspx>KnitPicks sample cards
I'm seriously considering just spending the $24 and ordering all of them at once (minus the one I have for Merino Style).
