  8. ''3 skeins montana by lang yarns (90m per skein)'' - I cannot find that yarn on lang yarn's site, so please, would you explain what yarn weight or yarn type is used for the scarf? Also, do you know the weight of those skeins?
    Thank you

    1. that should be easy to explain:
      co = cast on (monter)
      pm = place marker (placer marqueur)
      k = knit (maille(s) endroit)
      p = purl (maille(s) envers)
      sts = stitches (mailles)
      BO = bind off (rabattre)
      rnd(s) = round(s) (tour)

      hope that helps ;)
