1 ripple + 6 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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
dc3tog (dc 3 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook - 2 sts decreased.
1. Scarf is worked widthwise, in a ripple pattern.
2. You may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
3. The ripple pattern consists of alternating 3-dc peaks and dc3tog valleys. Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned. 3 dc are worked into the center dc of peaks and dc3tog are worked centered over valleys.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 3 ch, 3 dc in next ch, dc in next 5 ch, *dc3tog, dc in next 5 ch, 3 dc in next ch, dc in next 5 ch, rep from * across - 16 ripples.
Row 2-7: Ch 3, turn, skip first 2 dc, dc in next 4 sts, 3 dc in next st, dc in next 5 sts, *dc3tog, dc in next 5 sts, 3 dc in next st, dc in next 5 sts, rep from * across; leave turning ch unworked.
