GAUGE:
16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS rows, p on WS rows). 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:
Surface Chain Stitch With yarn threaded into blunt needle, bring needle from WS to RS through piece.

*Hold short length of yarn on front forming a small loop.

Insert needle back into where it emerged, do not pull tight.

Bring needle back through work a short distance from previous insertion point and through small loop; rep from * for desired length.

NOTES:
1.

Scarf is worked in one piece in intarsia and stranded colorwork, following Charts.

2.

When working from Charts, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS), reading RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.

3.

When working in intarsia colorwork, use a separate ball of yarn for each color section.

Do not carry unused color(s) across WS of work.

Wind yarns into separate balls as needed.

Twist yarns on WS to prevent holes.

4.

When working in stranded colorwork, carry color not in use across WS of work.

5.

If desired, small areas of color may be worked in Duplicate st when piece is completed.

6.

End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.

7.

Garter st (k every row) borders are worked in one with the Scarf.
