Lion Brand® Amazing®

GAUGE:

18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

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 – you have increased 1 st.

NOTES:

1. Scarf is made from a series of triangles that are attached to each other as you knit them.
2. All sl sts should be slipped as if to knit. Move your working yarn to the back before slipping a st.


SCARF
Cast on 20 sts.
Right Triangle
Note:
Triangle is worked in short (partial) rows. Knit only as many sts as instructed, then turn piece and work the next row, leaving the remaining sts unworked. A marker will be placed on Row 4 to mark the end of short rows - this marker will need to be moved on every row.
Row 1: K1, kfb, k1, turn.
Row 2: Sl 1 as if to knit, k to end.
Row 3: K1, kfb, k3, turn.
Row 4: Place marker (pm), sl 1 as if to knit, k to end.
Row 5: K1, kfb, k to marker, remove marker, k1, turn.
Row 6: Pm, sl 1 as if to knit, k to end.
Rep Rows 5 and 6 until you have worked all the cast on sts and have 38 sts on your needle.
If you are counting rows, you will have worked 36 rows.
Last Row: K1, kfb, k to end - 39 sts at the end of this row.
The first Equilateral Triangle will beg at the lower point of the Right Triangle.

Next Row: Sl 1 as if to knit, k to end.
Last Row:K1, kfb, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1 - 39 sts at the end of this row.

 

Rep the instructions for the Equilateral Triangle until 10 Equilateral Triangles have been worked. Note: After the first Equilateral Triangle, the following triangles beg at the point of the previous Equilateral Triangle.
When 10 Equilateral Triangles have been worked, work the End Triangle as follows:

K1, kfb, k2tog, turn.
Row 2: Sl 1 as if to knit, k to end.
Row 3: K1, kfb, k1, k2tog, turn.
Row 4: Sl 1 as if to knit, pm, k to end.
Row 5: K1, kfb, k to marker, remove marker, k2tog, turn.
Rep Rows 4 and 5 until you have worked all but 19 sts of previous triangle.
The last row worked will be Row 33.
Next Row: Sl 1 as if to knit, pm, k to end.
Next Row: K2tog, k to marker, remove marker, k2tog, turn.
Rep last 2 rows until 3 sts remain. The last row worked will be Row 67.

Directional Colors Scarf Reviewed by Jean on 2014-11-10 *****
This was such a fun pattern. I learned a new technique.Directions were easy to follow. Using The Amazing yarn , gave me the incentive to either finish a triangle or a color change. I am now using the yarn to make a hoodie .
