6 stitches = 5" [12.5 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.

For easiest use, wind the yarn into a ball.

Remove the band and carefully cut the 4 pieces of string binding the hank.

Have a friend place her or his hands in the center of the yarn loop, resting it on the forearms.

Widen the arms to make the loop taut.

(You may use a chair back if a friend is not available.) Find one of the yarn ends and wind the yarn into a ball.



Cut 12 strands of yarn, 25 inches [63.5 cm] long each, for fringe before beginning scarf.


Cast on 6 stitches.

Knit every row until about 1 yard [1 meter] of yarn remains.

Bind off and weave in ends.


Attach fringe to both ends of Scarf as follows: Take 1 of the 25 inches [63.5 cm] strands of yarn and fold it in half.

Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of Scarf, forming a loop.

Pull ends of fringe through this loop.

Pull to tighten.

Make a fringe in each stitch along each short side of the Scarf.

Trim fringe if necessary.
