Wandering Stripe Scarf

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Wandering Stripe Scarf Reviewed by Mey-Ling Brizuela on 2010-12-27 ****
Great scarf!! I did make one color change just because I couldn't find the "pea green" colored yarn, so I used chocolate brown instead and I loved it. Will definitely make another ( I ordered the missing yarn on line). Will try the previous suggestion of knitting 3 stitches on either end to keep it straight.
