I watched a u tube video on these scarfs and went and tried it on my machine(Brother Bulky). I just finished it. The yarn is Starbella by Premeir. You can see how I did it at http://cckittenknits.wordpress.com

Thank you soooooo much! but I can't take the credit, it is the yarn that makes it look nice. Hope you try one if you have a machine or you are a hand knitter.

I am so glad that you did it on the machine; I had thought about it, it seems as though it would be easy, except for putting the yarn onto the needles....but, I think I still would enjoy doing them more on knitting needles.

Thank you. I hope you try it. It was fun. I am going to do one in black also and then might buy a variegated color to try for myself.

Actually, it was very easy putting on the needles on the machine especially with this yarn. The Red Heart Sashay I have not tried yet but it looks like the edge has to be stretched first and may take longer. When it is available I want to see what it looks like and the texture of it.
Hope you knit one. :thumbup:

Question, did you just use the machine as a guide? Was this done by hand or did you slide the yarn in the carriage? I can't imagine the yarn going through the carriage. Sorry to sound so dense.

Just courious, is it the color you like better than others or the actual scarf itself?
