When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

The Wrap features a turned back Collar in the pattern of a piano keyboard.
The Body is worked in a shell pattern, shaped at the center back into a shallow V.
This shaping helps the Wrap stay on and drape.
Note: The piano key Collar is made first, like a scarf from end to end.
It depicts four octaves, worked in sc tbl with specific color changes.
You will need two working yarns in A and one in B.
The B keys are 8 stitches long and 2 rows wide.
8 stitches of the Collar are worked in striping pattern, but at every row youll change to the second ball of A for the remaining 4 stitches.
So B is carried up one side of the Collar at the same time the second white is carried up the middle on the wrong side of the work.
After dropping, keep the A strand of the middle color change to the wrong side of work.
This technique means you end up with no cut yarn and very few loose ends to deal with.
