16 stitches = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit 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.


The Scarf is worked in Garter stitch (knit every row).

Garter stitch is reversible, so your Scarf will look good on both sides.


Because of the number of stitches, the Scarf is worked back and forth in rows on a circular needle.

Work back and forth on the circular needle as if working on straight needles.


Stitches are bound off and then cast back on to make a keyhole opening in Scarf.


You don't need to cut the old color yarn when changing color - just carry the color you're not using along the side edge of the piece, ready for the next time you need it.
