Paintbox Scarf

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

19 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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

NOTES:

1. Scarf is worked in intarsia colorwork. Do not carry unused color(s) across WS of work. Use a separate ball for each block of color. When changing color, pick up new strand from under dropped strand to twist yarns and prevent holes from forming in your work.
2. Scarf can be worked from written instructions or by following the chart. When following chart, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When working from chart, read RS rows on chart from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
