Ballerina Scarf

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS rows, p on WS rows) with larger needles.

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:

Knitted Cord (on double pointed needles) Work with 2 double pointed needles, cast on specified number of sts. Knit the sts. Do not turn work. *Slide sts to other end of needle and knit them, pulling yarn tightly across the back of the work, (do not turn work); rep from * until cord measures desired length.

 

NOTES:

1. Scarf is worked in one piece in intarsia colorwork, following Charts.
2. Use a separate ball of yarn for each color section. Do not carry unused color(s) across WS of work. Twist yarns on WS to prevent holes. Wind A, B and C into 2 separate balls each before beginning.
3. When working from Charts, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS), reading RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
4. End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.
5. Embellishments are added to completed Scarf.
