8 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Mistake Rib pattern. 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.

Mistake Stitch Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 3)
Row 1: K3, *p1, k3; rep from * to end of row.

Row 2: K1, *p1, k3; rep from * across to last 2 sts, p1, k1.

Rep Rows 1 and 2 for Mistake St rib.

1. Scarf is worked in Mistake Rib pattern - the 'mistake' is that the sts of the rib shift on alternate rows.

2. The Mistake Rib pattern produces a Scarf that looks good on both sides - there is no right or wrong side!
3. The Mistake Rib pattern is worked over a multiple of 4 sts + 3 extra.
4. Take the time to study your knitting as you begin each row.

After working a few reps of Rows 1 and 2, you should be able to 'read' your work well enough to determine which row you are on.
5. When the instructions say to work until almost all yarn has been used, this means that you should stop when you still have enough yarn to bind off.
6. The 63 in.

(160 cm) long Scarf in this pattern used 5 balls of yarn.

This means that one ball made a length of about 12 1/2 in.

(32 cm).

You can use this information to make a Scarf with fewer balls of yarn - for example, 4 balls of yarn would make a Scarf about 50 1/2 in.

(128.5 cm) long.


Cast on 15 sts.
Work in Mistake st rib until almost all yarn has been used.

Bind off.

Weave in ends.

k = knit
p = purl
rep = repeat(s)(ing)
st(s) = stitch(es)
