GAUGE:
18 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:
1.

Scarf is worked in wedge shaped sections changing color following the Color Sequence.

The wedges are shaped by scs, hdcs and dcs.

2.

The Scarf is not difficult to make, but it is very important that you read the instructions for each row carefully and that you keep track of which row you are on! 3.

The color is changed on every other row.

To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over.

Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st.

Fasten off old color.
