1. Introduction and Project Overview: Hi, I'm Connie, and I'm a certified course. She instructor through the Craft Yarn Council. I've been teaching crush A since 2013. Now and today I'm excited to share with you one of my most popular designs. It's called the Chameleon Scarf. And it is this fantastic piece that I am wearing today. You can also see it behind me here. Worked up in another color way called Sunrise. Isn't it fun? So in class today, we're gonna talk about variegated yarns. That's what's used in this scarf. And it's a specific kind of variegated yarn that really makes this pattern shine. So we're gonna talk about that. I'm gonna help you choose a couple different options. And I'm also going to teach you how to do the linen stitch. Now it's also sometimes called the Moss Stitch, so you may know it by that name. But it's a very simple stitch comprised of single Chris Shays in chain stitches, and they come together to make this really fantastic woven fabric. It's so versatile, y'all and everybody I know who knows. This stitch really enjoys it, so I think you will, too. Now the scarf is works lengthwise and in the round. But don't worry. I'm going to show you step by step, how to do that as well as take you through the written instructions in the charts so that you can either follow along with me during the video where you can work from the written instructions at home on your own. I'm so excited to get started with you all today and I can't wait to see what you guys come up with. 2. Selecting Yarn: All right. So the first thing I want to talk to you about is your own choice. Now, there are tons and tons of options out there for you to choose from, and I'm gonna show you a few of them here today. But don't be limited by just what I show you. OK, so the yard that I originally chose for this project is Red Heart Boutique, Unforgettable. This is title, and the scarf behind me is done in sunrise. I've also done it in Polo. That was my 1st 1 actually. And this is called stained glass. So these are all really cool color ways, but there are lots of options in other yarns as well. So the ever popular and trendsetting Karen Cakes is a fun option as well as premier Sweet roll. This is relatively new, but they also have what we're looking forward in a variegated yarn For this scarf, what we want is a self striping Yorn. We want if variegated yarn with long color changes. So let me show you what I mean by that. So if you look at the can cake here, you can see long color changes. You seems big segments of color here. So if you look if you pull out a single strand of yarn, you're not going to see more than two colors over several inches in the arm. Same way with premier here. So you've got this light blue kind of a tool ish color, and there there's a darker teal and then a blue, and then we're back to the darker or the lighter teal here. So you see these segments of color when you're looking at the aren't so you know, just by looking at this that this yarn has long color changes. If you look at the unforgettable here now, this is more blended, so there aren't stark color changes like there are in in these yarns, but you can still see those segments of color running through here. So again, if you pull up a single strand of this yarn or a couple of strands, you're not going to see more than two colors in a segment of your in that several inches long. Now, if you pick up a variegated yarn with short color changes, you pull up that stranding yarn. You're going to see three or four different colors in a strand of several inches and why you absolutely can use that kind of variegated yarn. For a scarf like this, you're not going to get the same sort of striping pattern that you see. That kind of makes this pattern unique. So what you're looking for when you're choosing Yorn is a variegated yarn with long color changes. Now again, feel free to use whatever kind of your own you want. Make sure, though, when you choose your yorn to take a look at the label on the yarn. So this is the unforgettable and on the back of it here, it suggests a J. Hook. So that's what I chose for this project. Now, if you have a different tension or you work up the swaths of knowing I don't really like the way this fabric looks or feels change your hook. See if you can make it more to your liking, either with a larger or a smaller hook. Now let's take a look out this the Karen cakes, and this label calls for an H hook, so that's a lot smaller, Um, and if you look at the yard side by side here, up there so you see, especially if we pull it a little bit. This yarn actually looks a little bit smaller than this yarn does, so it's going to work up really differently by using a different hook size. So take a look at the hook size that is on your your label and then do us watch, see how it works up and then make your adjustments. So if you think that it's too dense, if it doesn't have a good flow, it doesn't have a good drape. Then increase your hook size dual a larger one. If it is, um, to loose to open, then go down a hook. Size uses smaller hook size. Now when you make these kinds of changes, if you change your dorn, you change the hook size that's going to adjust the gauge. So this is why it's really important to do a swatch, which I will walk you through, so don't worry about that. But if you do choose to change your yarn, that's going to change how many stitches you get per inch. So do your swatch with your chosen yarn and hook and count and see how many stitches you get over that that four inches or so if you want. Do if a larger chain and that will give you a more accurate gauge. And then you can make your calculations and adjustments based on your gauge swatch before you make that entire starting chain of 236. I think it ISS so this scarf is works lengthwise, so we're going to start with a really long chain. So it's better to do that swatch at a time and kind of get an estimate of how many stitches you're going to need to get the scarf length that you want. That one more thing following the directions and following my gauge. If you're pretty close to my gauge, you should be able to get an entire scarf out of just one skein. Now, it's not gonna be super wide, so if you want a wider scarf, you're probably gonna want to skeins of yarn. Now, if you're using the Karen cakes, there's quite a bit of your in here, so you probably only need one now. I haven't done it with the, um, sweet roll here, but it's got It's got a sizable amount of yarn in it as Well, so this is 383 yards. This is 245 yards, and this is on here somewhere in there it is 270 yards. So, yeah, if you want to have a wider scarf, you might need two of these as well. Because, like I said, I can get ah, full scarf out of just one of thes. Um, but if you want it to be wider, you might want to get to All right. So choose your yarn, share your photos. I want to see what you've picked out. And then let's talk about tools and notions next. And then we're gonna get started with the pattern in the kirsch a 3. Tools & Notions: Let's talk for a moment about the tools and notions that you're going to need for this project. Now, we already discussed. You aren't so I have that here. And you're also going to, of course, need a crash A hook. Now for the yarn that I've selected, the unforgettable I'm using a J hook. This is theon or the hook rather that the your label suggests that you use. And like I mentioned in the urine segment, if you're choosing a different yarn or if you have a different tension, make sure that you adjust your hook to meet your needs. You're also going to want to have a pair of scissors and a your needle to sew in your ends . And I also recommend having a few stitch markers. Now for this project, I like to have four in one color, plus one or two in an alternate color, and I'm gonna show you a way to help you keep track of your rounds so that you really don't even have to think about it at once. You get going with this project 4. Pattern Review: before we start crashing, I want to take just a couple minutes to go through the pattern with you. Be sure and download it. You should be able to find it on your product page. That way you have it available for you to use in addition to going through the video with me, um, or on your own as you Kirsch A at home. Now, if you are comfortable with pattern reading A, you may not really even need this segment, so feel free to skip ahead and go ahead and get started. So you have to grab this here. We have pattern told up on my tablet. So of course, we start out with a title and a blower, because I let's talk a little bit and we've got a picture. Of course, now you do talk a little bit about gauge in this. Now we are going to start out with this little tiny little gauge swatch. That's what we're going to work on in the video today. Now feel free. If you just want make a fund scarf when you want to go with it, just start and go and have fun. However, if you have a specific size and minus specific length or a specific with that's not so much important as the width is. If you have specific size, though, or especially if you're changing yarns, then you should really do a gauge swatch. So you can use that to calculate any changes that you may need to make to your starting chain. Because if you look at the directions, we do start out with a chain of 236 stitches. Now, I know that sounds like a lot, but you all seriously, would you get prepped past the first round of this scarf. It gets really easy, and it's gonna work up super quickly. This stitch pattern, the linen stitch is a really simple stitch. Once you get the hang of it, once you see how it works and it creates a really fun fabric, so once you get going with it, I think you'll really like it. Now let's take a look at the instructions and the chart pattern, so it is color coded. So you see your starting chain here is in black. Round one isn't red. Round two isn't yellow in round three will be in blue and four isn't red again. So to read this chart, what we're gonna do, we typically reach arts from right to left. So we start with our chain coming across here and then round one starts right here with the Red X, and it reads to the left and then down and then back to the right because when work are saying we're turning it. But the chart can't do that. So we have to read it one way and then the other. So we're going to read it around like this. So when you're ready for war around two, you're going to start here. So at the end of round one at the end of red, then you're gonna go immediately to your right, and that's gonna be yellow, and you're gonna go up two left down to the right. Then you're ready for round three starts in blue, up toe left down and round and so forth. So that's how you're going to read the chart. Now let's take a quick look at the instructions. Now there's a lot of words here, and it's really not as complicated as it looks like. It iss so I will take you through this step by step in the demo over the next few videos. And that may be easier than falling along with the directions. I'm not going to lie, but I want to go through them for anyone who is a written direction sort of person. So let's take a look. All right, so here we have our starting chain in the gauge Swatch. If you're doing that with me, it's only going to be a starting chain of 12 for doing the full scarf. Go ahead and do your chain of 236. Or however many stitches that you need to make your scarf as long as you want it. So a chain of 12 here is how we start. And then round one in red is going to start with a single car shay in the fourth chain from the hook. So if we look at our directions here, you're going to work into the top, where the front and the back loop. So what you're gonna do is you can take a chain. You're gonna turn it up, turn it over so that you're looking at the back bumps or the little spine that runs up across the back of it. And you're gonna work into that back bump as well as one of the front loops. You wanna work under two loops when you do this, So so long as you do that, it should even out pretty well. So we're going to single cachet in the fourth chain from the hook. So that's right here in your chart. You're going to mark your teen three space. So right here for your corner. And then here we have our first repeat everything in parentheses here. We're gonna do this all the way across. So you're going. Sorry. Ignore that. Everything in parentheses here, we're going to repeat. So Chain One, skip one single cachet in the next. All the way across. Looking at your chart. Chain one, Skip one single Christian in the next chain. One sick one. Skip one. Sorry. Single kirsch A in the next Few do that all the way across. Whether you have 12 stitches or 236 when you get to the end, you're going to single crashing in your last chain, and then you're going to rotate your work clockwise. You're just gonna rotate it around so that you could work on the opposite side of the chain instead of flipping and over like we normally do when we work in rows. So now or starting chain is going to be on the top again and we're ready toe work back across it and then on our chart, that's the bottom side here. So we're working back to the right again and what we're going to do. So we're going to skip this first chain where the single Chris Shays worked into it on the opposite side, and we're going to single cliche into the first unworkable chain, the skipped chain from your previous side. So we're gonna single cliche there again, working through the back book and one of the front loops. And then we're gonna chain one skip one single Christian in the next. So we're working into the UN worked chains from the first side of working on it. I think this will make more sense when you see it. Also, if it helps, there are pictures in the pattern itself. So be sure you download it so that you can see those here later. I'll show you those OK So we do that all the way across for around one. When we get to the end, we're going to do our last Chain one, and we're going to single crashing into the Chain three space, and that's going to complete round one. And then we're ready to move on here to round two, which isn't yellow. So here we have our repeat again and parentheses, so we chain too. Then we single cruciate back into that chain through space again. Chain to single cruise ship back into the chain three space. So we have 123 single cliches worked into that chain three space. And then we're going to repeat the same pattern. Chain one, skip one single crush A all the way across our side. However, on this round on her second round and all of our rounds thereafter, we're going to work in between the single Chris Shays that we made incentive into a chain. We're going to work into the chain one spaces. So if you look, you're going to stagger your single Chris Shays here. So here's our last single Christie that we made. We're going to chain one skip one single cliche into the chain One space there. So if you look at the directions here, you working on your first side again, Chain one single cliche in the next chain. One space. You do that all the way across, you just repeat those steps. So Chain one, skip a single cliche single KJ in the next space chain. One single question in the next space Jane. One single Christian, The next face. And that's why you're going to do all the way across when you get to the end of your first started there, you're going to single crashing into your chain three space chain to to make your corner single Kushayb back in that chain. Three space again. Chane to single ship back into that chain three space again. So the statements on the first side we're going to have three single Chris Shays in that chain. Three space now returned around again. We're ready to work back across the opposite side. Same thing. Chain one. Skip one single cliche chain One single shot in the space change in one single Christian, the space all the way across. When you get to the end of round two, you're gonna single cliche into the first chain to space the two made, and that completes your round. So around three, let's move on down here. It's pretty similar. So if we look at the directions, we start with a star. Now, we're going to repeat from this when we get there. All right, so chain to coming over here. This is our blue round. So here's your chain to single core Shane the same chain to space. So back into this spot, that's your first corner, and you're going to chain one single Cochet into the next chain to space. That's right here. And then you changed, too. You're in blue Single Shane, the same team to space at your next corner. And now we come to our repeat again. Chain once in question in the next train one space across the sites of same thing we did on the last round. Chain one seemed to shame. The space chain wants to question the space all the way across to the end. When we get to the end chain one single Christian in the next train to space that is right here. Here's a single question the changes space and we chained to and single shape back into this chain one space again, and that's her corner. So if you look at your directions, here's her chain. One single cliche in the next train to space and then we repeat So that stops here with this blues Blue X, that single cliche right there. And then we go back to our star and we repeat. So here we chain to single action the same chain to space that we made our last ditch in. And then chain one single question the next chain to space that's here. Chane to Jane to single Shay in the same chain to scorn corner space. And then you work across again. And that's really all there is to it. As you work across the sides or as you work across the ends, you're going to keep going the same way that you work across the sides. So around four is where you see that you change to single key, chain the chain to the same change to corner space, same ways you did before. So here's our red shade twos and push it back in that space. And then, as you make your side your ends, look like your side. You're gonna follow the same pattern. Chain one single Chris, say in the next space chain One single question, the next space all the way across. When you get to the corner, you chain one and you single cliche in the same or in the next train to quarter space. And then you chane to here is the beginning for a repeat. So you're ends become the same as your size. They're just shorter, but it's the same pattern that you follow it. And that's all you need to know to make this scarf so real quick. Let's take a look at the rest of this pattern here. So here, see Brown spot through 10 is how many rounds I did with this scarf. If you change things up, if you got a different tension, you might give his many rounds. So just go until you run out of yarn. Or if you get two skeins, then go until you have a scarf. Is wise you want. So here is a picture. Remember, this is in. You can download this. This is in on your project page. Here is a picture showing working into those two bumps In the end, here is what your ground should look like at the end of round two thes air opposite ends of the scarf. You see how different the colors are there. Here's the end of round three. Now we're starting to see those corners shape up. And then, of course, when you get to the end, you have this fabulously colorful scarf with different colors on each end, in some cases, and it's just it's so much fun, you all, and I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Now it's time to crush. 5. Getting Started: All right, who's ready to crow? Shea, I am all right. So I have my hook here as well as my stitch markers and, of course, my yard. So we're going to start with a slip knot on our hook and what I'm going to show you today is the chart. I'm going to show you how to do the swatch size version of this. So what we're going to make is this little piece right here. It's about two by four inches, and this is going to help familiarize you with the pattern so that when you get ready to do your full size scarf, then you know how it works, and you're ready to just get started and go. This is also going to help you if you're changing yarn or you want to use a different size hook that way, if you want to have a different sized scarf, then you could make any adjustments than you need to based on your swatch. So let's get started. So for this swatch, I'm going to change 12 Now. If you are doing the full scarf right now, then you want to go ahead and chain. I know 236. It is a lot, but it's gonna be worth it in the ends. So let's see. Already lost count. 123456789 Let's back this one up because I pulled it to tights. 9 10 11 Well, all right, So here's my chain of 12. And remember, I'm just doing the swatch size, so if you're doing your full scarf, you want to go ahead and do your entire chain of 236 or however many stitches that you're making Now I'm gonna turn this chain over, and I'm going to work into the back side of it. And we're going to skip our 1st 3 stitches and work into the 4th 1 And what we want to do here is we wanna work into two loops. We wanna work under the middle loop here or the back loop as well is one of the front loops . So we're going to insert a hook, urine over, pull up a loop. We'll have two loops on your hook. You're in over and pull through to, and that is your first single, Cochet. Now, I also want to use a stitch marker here to help keep track of my ends. It's just going to make things a little bit easier, especially because this yarn kind of likes toe loop around and do its own thing. So I'm gonna throw this ditch marker in to our chain three space that we've created and lock it. All right. Now we're ready to go ahead and Cochet across this chain. So I'm going to chain one. I'm going to skip my next chain, and then I'm going to single course a again into the next chain. So under that back loop as well as one of the front loops and single Cochet Chain one, skip one single cliche chain one skip one single cliche. And you're going to do that all the way across your starting chain until you get to the end . Now, if you're working the full size scarf, go ahead and pause me here. And then when you get to the end, hit play again. All right, so here I am at the end of my chain. Here is my last skipped chain. I've already chained one, and I'm going to put one more single cliche into this last chain All right, now I'm going to turn this so that I can work on the other side of my starting chain to do that, I'm going to change three and again, I'm gonna use this stitch marker to mark that Chain three space. And now, instead of flipping my work over like I would normally do, I'm just gonna turn it. And now that's starting chain is ready to be worked into on this side. So what we're gonna do, we're going to skip this first chain that our last single Cochet, was worked into so you could see the V of the single cliche coming out of that stitch right there. And here's our next one over here. What we're gonna do is we're gonna work into the skipped chain that's between those two and again. We want to work under two loops. So we're going to get that back bump as well as one of the front loops and you are single Cochet. And now we're gonna continue with the pattern with a chain one Skip one. That's the one the single cliche on the opposite side was worked into. And we're going to work into the next skipped chain. And we're going to do that all the way across to the very end. Skip one single car shipping chain, one skip, one single cliche. All right, Now, here in this right there is my last single cliche. Or rather, my first single cliche from the beginning of this round. So we're going to skip that and we're gonna work directly into this starting chain right here. So we're going to single Cochet into that marked Chain Three space, and that is the end of our first round. So let's lay down and take a look here. It doesn't look like much yet. I know. So we should have doing the swatch. Now. We should have five single cliches going across this side to change three spaces as well as five single Chris Shays going across the other side. And you're ready to start round two 6. Round Two: Okay, So at this point, you should have completed your starting chain as well as your first round so that you're ready to start around two. Let's get started. Okay, So we are now ready to make our very first corner. So to do that, we're going to change, too. Go ahead and throw a stitch marker, and they're actually we're going to use the green stitch marker and our first corner. And this is just a little tip to help you keep track of your rounds to make it just a little bit easier. Okay. Now, to complete this corner, we're going to single cliche into that chain three space again. Remember our first or are last ditch of the previous round was made in that chain three space, and we're gonna work into it one more time. Here. All right, Now we're going to do our second corner. The chain too. Stitch marker back to the orange this time and single Cochet one more time into that chain three space. And now we can go ahead and take this ditch More stitch marker out because we don't need it there anymore. All right, so here, we should have three single cliches into this chain. Three space as well as our two corners marked. And now we're ready to work across the side. Okay, so we're gonna follow the same basic pattern with the chain one, Skip one single Cochet. Although this time we're going to be working in between the single cliches that we made in the previous round. So if you take a look at your fabric here, here is your first single. Cochet. So you've got one loop in the back and two loops in the front right there. That is your first single, Cochet. Here is your space in between them right there. So that's worth knowing what? Where we're going to work. It's going to be in between this one and that one. So here's our chain one. We're going to skip the single cliche, and we're going to insert our hook into the space in between those two single Christians just like that. It should be super easy. Go for the path of least resistance. Y'all. If it's too hard for you to work your hook into their, you may be trying to work into the chain instead of the space in between them. So Chain One, skip one single cliche in the chain space between the single cliches. All right, there is our last one. So again, if you are working the full scarf right now, go ahead and pause and catch up with me again when you get to the end of this first side. All right, so here we are at the end of our first side, we're ready to turn our corner. So we're going to chain one and make our last single cachet in this chain three space that we've already got marked lips stag, me or in there. Get around here. Chain Three Space Single Cliche. And to create this next corner, we're going to change, too. Throwing her stitch marker single car shipped back into that chain three space again, chained to market. Single cliche back into that chain of three space. Go ahead and take this stitch marker out because we don't need it there anymore. And we should have again 123 single Chris Shays in that chain three space. And now we're ready to work across the site again. So again, following the same powder chain one skip one single crush a in between the two single Chris Shays Chain one, Skip one single Christian in between the single Chris Shays. Now, if you need a little bit closer, slower still look at thes stitches. I do have pictures in the pattern, so take a look at that if you haven't already. If you need to see a closer look at how these stitches work. All right, so here we're almost to the end. We're going to make one more chain one skip this final single cliche before our first stitch marker, and we're gonna make one more single cliche in that marked space. Said that completes round to laying down here. It's a little twirly on me. All right, so here we should have six single Chris Shays coming across the side here. This is for the Swatch. Remember, if you're doing the full scarf, you're gonna have a lot more than six. And then we should have six coming across this side as well. And we've got our four corners now which are chained to spaces. And we've already marked where we've already worked into our first corner here from the round to start around three. So now you can start to see the spiral happening as we're working this in the round. So there's no joining with the slip stitch and working up to make your next ground. You're just going to keep working in a spiral without to stop it, and it's going to give you some really cool striping effects. Now, I do also want to show you how to we then your end. So let's go ahead and do that real fast. I'm just gonna thread my needle here and I'm gonna flip this over to the backside, and what I'm gonna do is I'm going to threaten this through those three single cliches on the ends, and I'm just gonna kind of cinch it up, pull it a little bit tighter, not too tight, because we don't want it to get puckered, but we want to pull it together so that it's not all loosey goosey. So we're just gonna run this through. There we go. That's looking better. And then I'm gonna work it up here and across this way a couple times. We're just gonna we've this end in until it disappears, go across that way and then just for some extra insurance We're going to snag this yard and work ride back across the way we came. Pull that truth and we can go ahead and cut this now and now that end isn't in our anymore . So much better. Okay, now we are ready to move on to round three. 7. Round Three: All right, so here we are, ready to start round three. Now, this should all look very familiar to you at this point. So let's go ahead and get started. Now. We're gonna make our first corner. We're going to chain, too. We're gonna use that green stitch marker again. Marking it is our first corner. And we're going to single cliche back into that chain to corner spaces to complete our first corner. And we can go ahead and take this one out. Now, Now, toe work across our side. We're going to chain one and move on over to that second corner. We're going to single cliche. Where are Stitch? Marker is chain, too. Mark that corner and then single cruise ship back into that chain to corner space and remove this Dutchman. There you go. Now we're ready to work across the side, and you've done this before. We're going to chain one, skip one single car share all the way across this side. So there's our first single cliche. We're gonna skip that one working between it. Chain one, Skip one single core shy all the way across this side Now. I know. I know. I'm just making the swatch. So it's super fast. I'm only doing, like, seven single car shades to get across this side. And you've got war on more work to dio during the full scarf. But at this point, it should be getting easy and fun. And you're going to start seeing your colors striping too. So this is where it starts getting exciting. All right, so here we are, at the end of our first side here, we're going to single crashing into that corner. Change too. Stitch marker. Singapore shipped back into that marked single urge chain to corner space again. Go and remove this one. Now we're gonna work across the side with the chain one and moving across to this next one single cliche chain too. Markets single cruise ship back into that space to create our fourth corner. Take that marker out and now we're gonna work across the sun again. Chain one, skip one single Cochet. It almost sounds boring, except that you're starting to see all these fun colors blending and melting and moving together. And it's also starting to look like something besides just a great big long squiggle. Y'all. This is where it starts to look like a square or a rectangle. Rather, I don't know why I keep sitting square. All right, So here's our last one. Same ways before we're gonna chain one. Skip that final single cliche and single Cochet into our corner there to end round three. They're now see, it's starting to take shape. All right, We're in any bread. We are ready for the next round. 8. Round Four and Final Thoughts: All right, you all this is the last round. I'm gonna take you through because this will be the way you work all subsequent rounds for this scarf. Okay, let's get started. All right. Same ways before work. We're going to work our first corner by changing, too. Marking that single cruise ship back into that chain to corner space and remove that stitch marker now to work across the ends. You're going to use the same pattern. Repeat, You're going to chain one, skip one. So you skipped that Singapore share their and you single Cochet into thing next chain one space. And then you do that all the way across your edge, no matter how short it is. Like this one that's already over or on your last round when it could be five or six. Or seven or more, depending on how. Why do you want your scarf? Okay, so here we are, already at our first or second rather corner. We're ready to single cliche into that corner. Change, too. Stitch marker and sink your ship back into that marked spot again. And with this mark, you know, we're gonna work across the side. Chain one skip one single cliche all the way across. I could single the song, but I won't spare you that. But look, look at the color changes that are happening already. This is such a fun color way. I'm gonna have to do a full scarf in this one. Chain one, skip one single crush A all the way across to our next stitch markers. So this is our third corner single Cliche change, too. Ditch marker, single cliche movie that right and again toe work across your ends. We're following the same pattern. It's just shorter. So Chain one, skip your next single cliche single cliche into the next chain One space between those single cliches. And now we're going Teoh Single Kirsch A into our final corner Change, too. Stitch marker, synchro shape. And that's all you need to know to do this scarf. You can keep going until either you run out of yarn, which is, you may know by now my favorite way to determine the final size of a project or if you'd get to the end of your first scan of yarn and you think you know, I really just want a bigger scarf, get another skein and keep going. You could make this as big as you want. You could even modify your starting chain into a blanket like this. That would be a really fun baby blanket, actually, To dio you could keep going with the swatch size, in fact, to make a cool baby blanket. Now I think I want to do that. All right, so that's all you do all the way across. And so you get to your final corner and you do you last single, crush a there. And if you get to the end and it's looking kind of funny, like your color changes, you don't like the way it looks. Go around until you get to a spot that you like the looks of nobody's gonna count your rows and see that you have six on this side and seven on the other side. It looks better to keep going or even back up to where your color changes. And in a way that you like do it. Nobody's watching. There is no crow shape Police. All right, so we throw the stitch marker in so that this doesn't come out while we're looking at it all right. So if you see here, I'm gonna come Exaggerated a little bit. We've got a little bit of a twist going on here. And the reason for that is we're working all of these stitches with the right side facing and Karsay stitches have a natural lean to them. If you're right handed, they're going to lean to the left. If you're right handed, they're going toe. If you left handed, they're going to lean to the right. Sorry. Um, so that's just a natural, um, characteristic, of course, saying it's not You're not doing anything wrong. If your stitches are leaning, they're supposed to go the way they were. So to counter act that if it bugs you, which I don't really mind a little bit of a twist, I think it's kind of fun in the scarf, so I don't really do anything with it. Your first line of defense, though, is blocking. So this little guy right here I blocked. Now it doesn't completely take the spiraling out, but it helps it line up. Ah, lot better. So as you can see, these guys are about the same size. But this blocked version is just a little bit more square. So you can do that. When you finish your score score, we finish your scarf, and that will help take out some of that twist. Another option would be to work every other round or even every third or fourth round if you wanted to, with the wrong side facing. So instead of just continuing in a spiral like we normally do when you get to the end of one round, flip it over and work it back the opposite direction. And that will help, uh, counter act some of the lean of your stitches by working a row with the wrong side facing so you can do that as well. But that is all you need to know to make this scarf, remember, just could repeat this last round until your scarf is whatever size you want it to be. 01 other thing I wanted to tell you about. If you do have to frog this yarn particularly this unforgettable you're in here. It's a fun fund, your nial. But all these little fibers look, it matches my nail polish. All of these little fibers, this little halo around the yard, they can get tangled up in each other. So if you have to pull it out, pull it out slowly. You see there, you see that snag happening. Those were those fibers wrapping around themselves, and if I had been pulling quickly, it might have tied into it not, and it would be even harder to come undone. So pull it out slowly. If you, for some reason, have to take some of this out because we don't want it getting all snagged up because it's hard to pull out. I want to show you. See, It's not gonna do it. Pull faster, Faster, faster. There was one. I pulled it out. All right, so it's not there. It goes a little bit. All right, so you see, See how those fibers I don't know if you can see this. See how the fibers air wrapped around each other there so you can just kind of break those fibers with your needle with scissors Very carefully. I'm trying not to pull too hard, because I don't just pull it apart and says, See, there it's coming. Got to do a little bit more. There it goes, all right, and now we're free and clear again. So if it does snag on you while you're undoing it or frogging it, that's what is called because you're ripping Rip, rip, rip it, rip it frogging Get it, huh? So if that does happen, just be patient and take it slowly, because that will happen with this yarn, it will get tangled up on itself. But other than that, I think this is a great yarn for this project. And I'm really excited to see what you'll make with this pattern because I've seen this scarf done in a few of these color ways that not all of them, I kind of want around and by all of them and make a scarf in each one of them. Isn't that just ridiculous? But I do. I want to see it in all of them. But I have also seen some really fun ones in other yards as well. That Karen Kicks is a really popular Yorn choice, and now that premier has their sweet rolls, I believe they're called out. I'm starting to see a few in that as well. So and of course, check out the Indy Dyer's. Y'all don't forget about the indeed IRS they do some really neat color combos with, ah long times really cool names as well. So be sure and check those out and share your pictures. I want to see what you all are making. And always, always, always. If you have questions, ask. That's what I'm here for. Okay? I can't wait to see what you got and I will see you soon. Bye.
