I casted on 22 stitches and used a US 15/10mm bamboo needle to knit the scarf. The scarf ended up being 9.25" wide and 65" long.

this is such a great tutorial, thank you! my scarf is looking great, apart from a few holes in the first few rows where i didn't really know what i was doing. is there any way you can cut off the end of the scarf and not let the whole thing unravel?
i dont have any needles but i still have my yarn from 7 yrs ago and im using drumsticks
(i ordered my needles and theyre gonna arrive in 3 days)
hopefully ill be able to transfer the knitted parts onto the actual needles lol....
The only thing you missed out was how to keep an even tension. Your scarf looks very even so how did you keep the tension ? Mine is loose or tight in.parts., and it looks awful. Please make a video of you knitting a block / a square so we can see how you maintain the tension over some length of knitting.
Your country people marry in old fashion type they like to celebrates their marry at those places and you call me fo with tou and bring those violin along the senery ia beautiful got tree and flowers cery colourful.
Muito bonito seus trabalhos, amei. Já estou inscrita no seu canal e deixei um like. Te convido para conhecer o meu canal também, faço crochê passo a passo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdFxO5tDpSI&t=810s
I’m wondering the length of this scarf, I’ve learned from your video the width is 22 stitches with two slip stitches on either side, to create the sleek sides. Is this correct? :)
This is so beautiful 😍 thank you for teaching so well. 🙏🏻
I am watching this so i could make one for a friend of mine since he’ll be leaving the country soon and go to UK. I like him ever since we’ve known each other and I confessed to him my feelings but was rejected. 😅 I wanted to give him this as a goodbye and thank you gift. Even though i am hurt by being rejected, i will always love him no matter what. Hope he’ll keep it... 😊 dont get me wrong, we’re in really good terms and very close friend still 😊 Thank you so much for this tutorial! It really helped!
Wow, thanks for that tutorial... Quite easy to follow for a beginner... I tried it right away with some chopstics, lol. Just a little suggestion: The white yarn is not so easy to see with the bright background, a more colourful yarn might be better...
this is a great video. I am just confused about the part where I am learning to make a cleaner edge. Do I slip off the first stitch of each row from the very beginning? or after I make the first row and?
I'm a beginner and have recently started french knitting socks from thin acrylic yarn. Been going for a few weeks. I'm doing white and purple. I messed up the sewing of the white sock and didn't cast off properly. I want to learn all of the techniques and make an icy blue scarf next, before other things.
Finger by the thumb is the index finger or the 1st finger. Next is the middle finger fallowed by the ring finger then the pinky finger. Not sure if someone in the comments mentioned that already or if you learned that since this was posted but it really bothered me that you couldn't name the fingers you were using
Your beginning "How to Knit a Scarf" video was so well done. I really appreciate the detailed explanations and encouragement your gave. I finished my first scarf yesterday and although it may be a little rough in spots I really am happy with it. Thank you so much. I hope to knit other things in the future!
I keep ending up with a giant loop at the end of the first needle transfer, when I bring the last loop over. Struggling horribly on the second needle transfer all together, but I feel like figuring out the first one will help work out the next ones. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, I'm following the steps to a T.
I tried this out and I'm 42 inches in. It's super relaxing and I know this video is a little old but still SUPER helpful and I really hope you do more. You're so awesome and such a natural teacher. I'm gonna try your beanie next!
Hey. Your explanation is super. Awesomely done. I suddenly was inspired to learn knitting or crochet and happen to check your channel. I was always averse to stitching and would never bother to even look into how it’s done. But this made it look so easy. It definitely will take time to get a hang of it but it isn’t scary anymore. Thank you thank you for your super help. I’m gonna try this as soon as I can. Looking forward for more such videos from you. Happy 2019 btw 🥳🥳🥳
I made a scarf for my boyfriend with this tutorial, it was super helpful!!! I've always been good with my hands but you were really clear and I really liked how you showed the same step multiple times. But the only problem for me was that occasionally I'd take longer to do something and I kept having to pause, maybe consider showing the same step but slow mo that segment? I used a yarn that suggested 10mm needles, and everything worked out great! For my scarf I only cast on 14 stitches and it's definitely wide enough haha
+Lily Huang I do! I've got one on a seed stitch cowl or scarf: https://youtu.be/J64WrUkaU0o and another on mistake rib stitch on an infinity scarf: https://youtu.be/o10eT67E1hc Here's my pattern tutorial playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSZARCc5KSoSmPKl_wIPAMw4CDnHVMUHF Enjoy!
Sorry you're having trouble! You can try watching this video on making a cast on: https://youtu.be/1vm6oaYzHyA (skip ahead to the 00:40 mark for the tutorial). It's a good beginner cast on that's an alternative to the one I show in this video. Good luck!
Anunciado durante a Gamescom 2017, uma das maiores feiras de videogame do mundo, o remake de Secret of Mana é, desde o início, um projeto pensado para agradar aos fãs de longa data e atrair jogadores novatos com um gameplay mais acessível.
Não se engane: a versão 2018 de Secret of Mana está mais para uma recriação do que uma mera remasterização com pequeno ajustes gráficos. O que temos aqui é um jogo completamente atualizado, com personagens redesenhados que ganharam nova vida graças à estética cartunesca.
Se, por um lado, as mudanças visuais foram projetadas para atrair novatos, por outro, algumas pessoas podem torcer o nariz pela simplicidade da nova abordagem - especialmente no que diz respeito aos cenários e criaturas do mundo.
Os cenários coloridos, por exemplo, ainda que estejam bem representados, trazem pouca variedade e deixam game com cara de “jogo de celular”. Isso fica mais evidente pela estrutura do game, já que muitas áreas estão completamente vazias e monótonas. Nesse quesito, Secret of Mana não tem vantagem em ter o fator nostalgia a seu favor.
O remake utiliza a clássica perspectiva de visão aérea, com a câmera posicionada acima dos personagens. É possível arrastar as bordas da tela manualmente para ter uma visão mais ampla do ambiente, o que é bastante útil para momentos de exploração.
O brilho da era noventista, mas com ressalvas.
Antes de tudo, é importante ressaltar que não há legendas em português, então o melhor a fazer é jogar com textos em inglês. A história continua sendo o ponto mais alto de Secret of Mana e, novamente, coloca o jogador no controle de três adoráveis personagens: Randi, Primm e Popoi - é possível jogar em modo cooperativo local para até três usuários.
O objetivo do grupo é lutar contra um império traidor ao mesmo tempo em que tenta recuperar o poder da Mana para restaurar a paz. O grande problema é que, embora os gráficos estejam atualizados, as animações ficaram presas ao passado. Em vez de despertar o sentimento de nostalgia, a falta de capricho passa a impressão de que o remake foi feito às pressas.
A jogabilidade à la Zelda foi aprimorada e permite desferir ataques de qualquer ângulo. Os inimigos também demonstram mais inteligência, uma vez que agora eles têm a opção de atacar a partir de qualquer ponto do cenário.
Ainda que a movimentação esteja mais fluida, parece haver algum problema técnico relacionado ao impacto dos golpes. Isso porque há momentos em que o personagem simplesmente não acerta o ataque, mesmo posicionado a uma distância razoável do oponente.
Além disso, a interface dos menus ficou bem aquém do esperado, com abas confusas e muito mal posicionadas. Há, no entanto, uma opção de mapear os itens essenciais nos botões do joystick ou teclado, o que facilita muito a organização na hora de combates mais exigentes.
O remake de Secret of Mana mantém a essência da pérola dos RPGs de ação dos anos 90, mas comete muitos deslizes ao tentar mexer em time que está ganhando. Menus engessados, sistema de combate com problemas técnicos e animações presas ao passado impedem o relançamento de ser a experiência definitiva, apesar de que possa valer para quem nunca experimentou o jogo original.
