11 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 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 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.
If you'd like to make a wider Scarf, you will need to cast on additional sts in multiples of 4.
Note: A wider Scarf will require additional yarn.
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 60 in.
(152.5 cm) long Scarf in this pattern used 4 balls of yarn.
This means that one ball made a length of about 15 in.
You can use this information to make a Scarf with more or fewer balls of yarn - for example, 3 balls of yarn would make a Scarf about 45 in.
(114.5 cm) long and 5 balls of yarn would make a Scarf about 75 in.
(190.5 cm) long.
Cast on 15 sts.
Work in Mistake Rib until almost all yarn has been used.
Weave in ends.
