Fallen Leaves Scarf

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Basket Weave. 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.

Fallen Leaves Scarf Reviewed by Diane Sanderson on 2010-09-11 *****
I have learned more knitting this scarf than I ever planned to know. I'm so excited to do some more slip stitch knitting with even more color changes. I'm on the seed stitch section, have ripped part of it out at least three times for making mistakes while not paying attention and am still not bored with it. That's unusual for me and why I usually knit small projects. Thank you Lion Brand for all the inspiration you give.
