Is this a pattern error?

[color=darkblue]If anyone has a moment, would you please look at thispattern?

I have knitted several swatches and it still seems that it cannot be as written.

Using US 15 needles, I get 8 rows = 5 inches. A total of 42 rows would yield a 20+ inch scarf. Impossible, no? Could they mean 42 rows of EACH yarn?

Perplexed and bewildered,

did you swatch it with both yarns? it looks like it is stretchy.

It says gauge is not crucial. You do 2 rows with one yarn, 2 rows with the other, alternating yarn. Did you do it that way? One is very thin, one is very thick, and yes it stretches.

I swatched it using the two yarns as directed. It is not as stretchy as it looks. Cannot reproduce the small yarns stitch size, even with stretching.

If, as I find, this makes up to 8-10 rows = 4 inches, no way that making only the specified 42 rows wopuld yield a wearable sized scarf. It would only be some 20 or so inches long, no?

[color=darkblue]I received email replies to the 2 questions re this that I posted to Lion Brand Yarn site. My questions were VERY specific; their answers explained nothing at all.

I am waiting for my brain marrow transfusion any day now, but still . . . .
