1Use a gauge of 15 sts (about 4 inch) to crochet this scarf that measures 8-3/4 inch x 60 inch. Remember to check your gauge. 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. If it takes you less stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Download template for crochet stitches and abbreviations not explained below. Notes: Scarf is worked in wedge shaped sections changing color following the Color Sequence. The wedges are shaped by scs, hdcs and dcs. The Scarf is not difficult to make, but it is very important that you read the instructions for each row carefully and that you keep track of which row you are on! The color is changed on every other row. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Fasten off old color. Long beginning and ending yarn tails are left when changing color. These yarn tails will be used to join the Bobbles to the Scarf. Yarn tails should be about 10 inch long.

Twist this one strand tightly in a clockwise direction, so that it begins to kink. Keeping the twisted strand taut, fold the strand in half, allowing it to twist around itself to make a cord. Draw one end of the cord through one contrast color Bobble and knot to secure. Repeat to make 12 cords, each with an attached contrast color Bobble, in each of the 4 groups of yarn tails.
