Carolyn's Alpine Lace - Finished!

Yarn: 60 grams of Blueberry Graceful from the Yarn Place.
Needles: Size 2 US/2.75 mm
Blocked size: 19"x72"
Alterations: Scarf worked with 7 multiples of diamonds, and 5 multiples of the center leaf pattern. Seventy-two repeats.

Now, the pattern calls for 37 repeats, so I figured I'd need an odd number. Unless they're not counting the first time chart B is worked in that 37, though, I can't figure it out. 8 rows of garter before chart B - 1/2 a diamond. 8 rows of garter after all the leaves - another 1/2 diamond. And there needs to be an even number of repeats in the middle to have complete diamonds.

My next shawl is going to be a worsted weight cardigan. After that ... who knows!

This is beautiful. I am still dithering about what color and what yarn to use for this - your choice is excellent!

Wow, that is truly stunning! I love the colour you chose!!
If you don't mind, which cast-on did you use? I've frogged twice now using two different methods, and each looked horrible (crocheted on and long-tail methods). It keeps looking too loose!

If it's not too much trouble, could you respond to floderten AT gmail DOT com?? :) Please?
