MATERIALS

  • 4 skeins of Purl Soho’s Gentle Giant, 100% merino wool. We used the colors Wolf Brown, Winter Bark, Heirloom White, White Peppercorn, Calico Pink, Pink Sky, Silver Berry, Purple Lupine, Pigeon Gray, Weathered Blue, Elephant Gray, Poseidon Green, and Graphite Gray.
  • US 50 straight or circular needles

GAUGE
Several of us knit up these scarves, and when we brought our finished work together, we were quickly reminded of the nuances of hand knitting. With such thick yarn on such large needles, an individual’s knitting tension gets magnified quite a bit. And when the next needle size down is so much smaller and the next needle size up is so much larger, you get what you get! The samples pictured here show the range of gauge you can expect to achieve when you make your own Eleventh Hour Scarf in Gentle Giant.

On the left…
- 3 1/2 stitches = 4 inches in stitch pattern with yarn doubled
On the right…
- 4 1/2 stitches = 4 inches in stitch pattern with yarn doubled

SIZE
These gauge differences of course affect the finished dimensions. If your gauge is closer to the scarf on the left your finished pieces will measure approximately…
- 8 inches wide x 82 inches long
If your gauge is closer to the scarf on the right, your finished piece will measure approximately…
- 6 inches wide x 78 inches long

NOTE
The yarn is doubled throughout this pattern.
