A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

working on this pattern

Candy Cane Scarf
Lion Brand® Holiday Homespun®
GAUGE:
12 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row). 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 make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
NOTES:
When creating fringe using Homespun, please note that because of the texture of the yarn the fringe will fray when cut. If you prefer a non-frayed look you can knot the ends, knit or crochet a fringe, or use hairspray or fray check.
SCARF Note: Carry unused color along side of work. With A, cast on 21 stitches. Rows 1 and 2: With A, knit. Rows 3 and 4: With B, knit. Rep Rows 1-4 until piece measures about 70 in. (178 cm) from beginning. Bind off.
FINISHING Fringe (make 9 each with A and B) For each Fringe, cast on 12 stitches, then turn and bind off. Cut yarn, leaving a long end. Alternating colors, tie 9 Fringes to each end of Scarf. Weave in ends.
