Project Instructions

    Use a gauge of 11 sts (about 4 inch) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) to knit this scarf that will measure about 10 inch x 66 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 knitting stitches and abbreviations not explained below. Notes: 30 individual strips are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS), then woven together to make the Scarf. Edges of Strips will naturally curl slightly.
