24 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) over Rows 1 and 2, after blocking. 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.
yo (yarn over) An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows: 1.
Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
Take yarn to back, over the right needle.
This creates the new st.
You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
Scarf is worked in one piece in an eyelet pattern.
We suggest that you wind the yarn into a ball by hand, rather than using a ball winder.
On every right side row, each yarn over increase is matched with a corresponding k2tog decrease.
This means that the stitch count will always remain the same.
