BE SURE 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 fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.
- Scarf is worked in wedge shaped sections changing color following the Color Sequence. The wedges are shaped by scs, hdcs, dcs and trs.
- 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!
- To change color, work the last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the 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 in. (25.5 cm) long.

Although this scarf is absolutely gorgeous...in my head I was thinking that it must be an advanced pattern, which is a turn-off for me. I don't have time to devote all that attention to following a pattern! It is a detailed pattern and looks to be time consuming, however it is simple to do. The only other thing that is holding me back from trying this one right now is the cost of making it. But I could use this pattern as a great pattern for a stash buster project. Yes, I could!
