Bulky Rib Mini Scarf

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


12 sts + 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Dimensional Rib. 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.

Bulky Rib Mini Scarf Reviewed by Margaret Schaefer on 2010-01-21 ****
The scarf wasn't very long, and quite bulky looking. If you added on some rows, it could work as a man's scarf as well.
