The project that im working on right now is the Emerald Scarf, by Tracy St. John, that is in the Interweave Crochet Spring 2009 issue. I didnt follow the pattern exactly due to the way i like to crochet. The patterns calls for you to chain 39 and work about 170 rows of the pattern to get the length that u desire. I prefer to chain to my desired length and work less rows. This usually doesnt matter in things like scarves but in this pattern you dont fasten off and then add on the edging. This pattern is continous, so i had to remember that my short sides ( in the initial row for the edging) is the long side in the pattern.
**UPDATE**I would have finished this a long time ago but i ran out of yarn and i need to go buy another skein, i have about 3 rows of the border left.
