  2. These colors say "Spring" to me, definitely not autumn. Is the scarf is worked in rows, why coes the gauge refer to rounds? Otherwise, it's a loveky pattern.

  3. Hi, I need help with the 7th row of the lace pattern. To me it is a 7 st pattern where all other rows are written for a 6 st pattern. I end up with not enough sets. Could you help explain

    1. thank you so much for the comment, there was a mistake in row 7 (lace pattern), and I think I've corrected it, besides others I found when I reread the post.
      please inform me if it's OK now.

    2. Great!!! The math works now. I will re-do my scarf pattern to include the fix. All I could do before was just skip row seven and do 1-6 over and over. It looks different but lace-like......
      Thanks, for your help! Glad to know you are still there and responding.
