Gauge: 18 sts & 44 rows = 10 cm / 4” over Light Colour pattern on 3.75 mm needles after steam blocking.

Needles: 3.75 mm / US 5 circular needle, 40 cm / 16” length Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 1 locking stitch marker, tapestry needle for cast off

Notes: Two tubular rows are worked after the cast-on and at the end of the scarf to help control the edges.
Place a marker on the RS of work. The fabric is reversible but this makes the directions easier to follow.
The scarf is constructed using the LIGHT COLOUR PATTERN for one fourth of the length, then switching to the DARK COLOUR PATTERN for two fourths, ending with the LIGHT COLOUR PATTERN for the final fourth.
