So here's to technical editors everywhere, and especially to the ones at Interweave, who condensed my overly-wordy pattern into an elegant half-page of essentials. Their careful pruning and terminology tweaks taught me several things I needed to know about pattern-writing.
Thank you, Interweave tech editors, for all your hard work behind the scenes.

I'm really excited about the enthusiastic response to the Ghost Cone Scarf. Many beautiful versions have already popped up on its Ravelry project page, and I've received several requests for a tutorial to demonstrate how the scarf is put together. In response, here are a few short videos which I hope will answer some common questions about this pattern.
1. Forming the Arch
2. Taming the Twist
3. Joining the Columns
Note re joining the columns: You may of course join them as often as you wish during the scarf construction - the pattern recommends every third arch, but you could do it at every arch, every other arch, or farther apart. (Forgot to say this in the video.)
If you have any other questions about the pattern, please don't hesitate to e-mail, or contact me in Ravelry, and I'll be happy to answer them if I can.
Again, thanks for viewing, and happy crocheting!
