Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


18 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Pattern st. 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.

Diva Scarf Reviewed by robin goode on 2013-07-11 *****
I learned a lot with this pattern: how to yarn over, how to tink or un-knit really well, how to weave in my loose "tails," but, maybe most importantly, how to think logically. At one point the number of stitches on the row was wrong--I had somehow added or lost stitches. I learned that in knitting, as in life, you can't just ignore it when the stitches aren't adding up properly! As a result, the scarf has "hips." After a while I realized that the yarn overs were compensating for the k3tog stitching, and that I could maintain the right number of stitches by always counting my stitches after each row, and by simply adjusting by adding or omitting a yo, or by k2tog instead of 3, etc.

Great project, beautiful scarf, in spite of my mistakes. I'm making another one (the right way this time!) for my hairdresser's granddaughter, whom I've been inspiring with my knitting.
