Tension/Gauge: 15 sts & 28 rows = 10cm (4”) Although tension is not essential to the outcome of this scarf it is important to use a slightly larger needle than you would normally need for your yarn to create a slightly loose fabric so that your scarf has a nice drape
NOTE Even though a circular needle is used for this pattern the scarf is not knit in the round. A circular needle is used as it can hold all the stitches
