Haven't made a dent
...in this gray cone of yarn. Two six foot long scarves, triple stranded, hasn't done it. I got the double bed tuck pattern from Diana Sullivan's blog: http://diananatters.blogspot.com/
wishing I had prettier yarn to show it off. I used a tight tension on the standard gauge machine so it didn't come out as lacy as hers. The left side would probably be considered the public side and the right side the back. Doesn't really matter. It's nice and squishy. If you stretch it out a bit, you can see the tuck pattern better.
After a gazillion rows, nice smooth non-rolling edges, no dropped stitches and no mispatterning. That's a very good thing. It will keep someone warm next winter.
