Lion Brand« Bonbons
24 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
1. Scarf is worked in Garter st (knit every row) in 8 different color sections.
2. In each section, 2 rows are worked with one color, then 2 rows with a second color. One color from each section is carried into the next section.
3. Do not cut either yarn color when working a section; instead, simply carry the unused color along the side edge of the work.
4. To create a neat edge on the Scarf, always slip the first st of every row as if to purl.
