18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in chevron 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


kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle - 1 st increased.
skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch - 1 st decreased.


1. Chevron pattern used in scarf forms 'peaks' and 'valleys'. Peaks are made with decreases (k2tog and skp), and valleys with increases (kfb).
2. Peaks are always worked over peaks of previous rows and valleys over valleys.
3. Markers are used to separate the chevron pattern from the Garter st (k every row) borders.

Cast on 42 sts.
Row 1 (Right Side): K3 for Garter st border, place marker (pm), kfb, k6, skp, k2tog, k6, (kfb) twice, k6, skp, k2tog, k6, kfb, pm, k3 for Garter st border.
Row 2: K3, slip marker (sm), purl to last 3 sts, sm, k3.
Row 3: K3, sm, kfb, k6, skp, k2tog, k6, (kfb) twice, k6, skp, k2tog, k6, kfb, sm, k3.
Rep last 2 rows until piece measures about 72 in. (183 cm) from beginning.
Bind off.


Weave in ends.

Chevron Scarf - in Amazing 'Aurora' Reviewed by Rebecca Myers on 2012-07-09 ****
I was a pretty new knitter when I started this, and the stitch markers really helped me. I used three: 1 in the center to remember to do the increases, and one inside the garter-stitch border to remind me to change from purling to knitting. This pattern was EXCELLENT practice for several new skills, including purling, increases and decreases, and keeping track of the right number of stitches.

I agree that the curling edge is a problem (even the one on the model is curling). I had read the reviews and started with 3 rows of garter, but wish I had done 5. It would have matched the side edges. I ended it with 5, and you'll see in the last photo that it lays a lot smoother. I stopped when it reached past my waist on both sides, which used 2.5 skeins of yarn. I plan to use the rest for a matching ear-warmer, as my sister requested that over a hat.

People who saw me working on it all bragged about the pretty colors, and how soft the yarn feels in stockinette stitch. All in all, I would make this again, with the above-mentioned change on the ends. To thank you for the free pattern, I'm attaching some photos for your site.
