Lauren Scarf

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


18 sts + 27 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Tuck 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Lauren Scarf Reviewed by CATHLEEN BAKER on 2012-12-10 *****
Just finished mine in cream and absolutely LOVE it! What had me the most wary of this pattern was not the cables but the 245 stitch rows...decided I liked the picture well enough to give it a try. It knitted up quick...started it Saturday evening and finished on Monday....just in time for the first cold weather of the season. I highly recommend this pattern!
