GAUGE:
16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). 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. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Inc 1 st (kfb): knit the next stitch without removing it from the needle, then k through back of same st to inc 1 stitch.

NOTES:
1) Modular Knitting is way of giving a 'patchwork' effect to your knitting without picking up stitches or seaming.

In the Modular Scarf pattern, you will work a series of triangles that are built atop one another.


2) Sl all sts as if to knit.
