- Time:2 hours
1Use a gauge of 20 sts + 40 rows (4 inch) in Garter st (k every row) to knit a scarf that measures approximately 5-1/2 inch x 67 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 make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size needle. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Special stitch: Cable Cast On - transfer needle with sts to left hand. With empty needle in right hand, *insert right needle between first 2 sts on left needle; wrap yarn and pull through (as if knitting a st); transfer new st to left needle. Repeat from * for desired number of sts. Notes: A strip of mitered squares is worked first, then sts are picked up across one long edge to work stripes. The Squares are added in a modular fashion; sts are picked up across the edge of the previous Square to beg the next Square. Each Square is worked back and forth in rows with decreases worked in the center of every other row to form a miter. Work Squares in colors of your choice. To change color, cut the old color leaving a long yarn tail then beg working with new color leaving a beg yarn tail. You may knot the old and new yarn tails together, if desired. When you have finished knitting, unknot the yarn tails and weave them in.
