Stitch Pattern Video for My So-Called Scarf

For Roxann and the other members of the Clapotis Knit-Along:

A video tutorial on the stitch pattern from My So-Called Scarf.

Small Version (6.3 MB)
Larger Version(16 MB)

You'll need Quicktime to view it. The larger version is much easier to watch, but is a fairly large file. You may have better luck downloading it to your computer, rather than watching it directly in your browser. If you do watch it in the browser, it may take a minute or two before the viewer even appears, so be patient. Or cast on a few stitches while you wait, so you can follow along!

The stitch pattern I'm demonstrating here looks like:



The yarn used in the picture is Manos del Uruguay, which Stacey's pattern calls for, in the Granite colorway.

The yarn used in the video is McTaggart Tweed, a fisherman-weight (heavy worsted) wool from Beaverslide Dry Goods.

On that note, here's a picture of Una snuggling with the Beaverslide yarns:

Thank you for taking the time to do this! :)

Your printed instructions are very clear, but it is much easier to see the process on video.

Much appreciated!

Your video is the best I've seen on the web so clear and I love how you repeated it several times. PLEASE make a video of the Japanese Aran -Crossed in Translation. maybe then I could get it. All those twisted from the back cables-UGH
Thanks.

Aw, thanks Lisa! Crossed in Translation is _amazing_. It looks like it takes at least 40 rows to repeat, though, so I think it'd be a little long for a video. :)
