GAUGE:
13 sc = 4 inches (10 cm). 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:
Cluster st (Yo hook, pick up loop in same st, yo hook and pull through 2 loops) 3 times, yo hook and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

NOTES:
Scarf is worked along long edge beg from center.

Do not end off each color but carry them loosely along side until needed later on.

To change colors: Always end off last loops of last st with next color.
