Notes regarding gauge: It’s important, and helpful, to knit a swatch before starting any project. Your swatch will ensure accuracy in the final fit, especially when substituting a yarn. Regardless of the needle size indicated in the pattern, use whatever size gives you the stated gauge for the project. The yarn band gauge suggests a yarn will work to a certain number of stitches, however, your gauge will vary according to tension, needle size, yarn, and stitches used.

I sprayed the scarf with tepid water, placed on the ironing board and used an ironing cloth or a cloth you have on hand (very important) over the scarf and lightly ironed over the scarf with a low heat to prevent felting. After ironing, I placed it flat on a towel to dry completely where it would be undisturbed. You can also use a rust proof pin and lay flat on a blocking mat, board or towel and dry overnight if you don’t feel comfortable using an iron.
