Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®
4 V-sts = 9 in. (23 cm) with 5 strands of A and 2 strands of B held together. Due to the nature of the fabric when working with a Speed Hook, gauge may vary throughout project. 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 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
|V-st (Dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st.|
1. Scarf is worked with 5 strands of A and 2 strands of B held together.
2. Before beginning, cut 22 in. (56 cm) lengths for fringe as follows: cut 150 lengths of A and 60 lengths of B. Set lengths aside.
With 5 strands of A and 2 strands of B held together, ch 25.
Row 1: V-st in 5th ch from hook, *sk next 2 ch, V-st in next ch; rep from * across to last 2 ch, sk next ch, dc in last ch – 7 V-sts.
Row 2: Ch 3, turn, V-st in each ch-1 sp across, dc in top of turning ch.
Rep Row 2 until almost all yarn is used. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
For each fringe, hold 5 strands of A and 2 strands of B together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of piece, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop and tighten. Make 15 fringes along each short edge of Scarf, knotting the fringe through each ch-1 sp and sps between V-sts. Trim fringe ends evenly.
