I'm knitting up this pattern right now. Thanks for sharing!
 
on the march scarf which is really nice, is it knit 2 at the end...because there is another knit st at the end also..thanks
 
Yes, if you read the instructions for row 2 it has K2 at the end.
 
Shouldnt the march scarf be 18 stitches???? its 2 knits at beg and end....and all the rest of the scarf is 2 stitches also..thanks for the pattern
 
Only if you don't want the two edges to look the same. If worked the way it is written there will be a purl stitch next to the garter stitch edge on both edges.
 
I dont understand how it could be 19 stitches as everything is 2 sts.....wouldnt you have 1 stitch left over.....2, 2, 2,2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2,l
 
Yes and following the sequence you have been using the next stitch is a purl.
 
I tried this out...and I love the way it came out...the reverse side is almost as pretty and the right side. So much so, that I am make a lap robe for the nursing home out of the same pattern
 
Hi, I love the scarf pattern. Thank you! Just one question, mine is curling on the edges, did I do something wrong? It looks just like your picture and I followed the pattern. Any suggestions?
 
You could try blocking it. Next time make the garter stitch border wider and it should lay flatter.
