Image of Zodiac Scarf - Cancer

The combination of silver, pink, and orange used in this scarf will make you feel chic and stylish. The colors used are inspired by the attributes associated with the astrological sign: soft pink for nurturing, radiant orange for responsibility, silver grey for dependability, and silver blue for intuition. *Note: Picture is of the crochet version.

Zodiac Scarf - Cancer

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

15 sts = about 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Yo (yarn over)
A yarnover (yo) is worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the yo.

NOTES:

1. Scarf is worked in wedge-shaped sections changing color following the Color Sequence. The wedges are shaped by working yarnovers (yo's), all of the other stitches are knit.
2. The yarnover's are worked on Row 3, then dropped on Row 4. To drop a yarnover, knit until the yarnover is the next loop on your left hand needle, drop the yarnover loop by simply sliding it off your left hand needle. This will create long strands of yarn across your work.
3. The Scarf is easy to make, but you will need to keep track of which row you are on!


COLOR SEQUENCE
Work *4 rows with A, 4 rows with B, 4 rows with C, 4 rows with D; rep from * for Color Sequence.
