i dont understand the pattern, how does 10 rows make a 6ft long scarf
It’s knit sideways.
Then your gauge is off. The gauge is 1 inch per stitch. 72 inches is 6 feet.
Can you use straight needles versus the rocket needles?
Rocket needles are just 3/4” or 19mm needles. It doesn’t matter if you use straights or circulars.
Ok, when I looked up rocket needles, they were circular. I’m a novice, so I don’t always understand the terminology. Thank you.
Has anyone made this scarf? If so, how did it turn out?
I don’t know why the difference, but I definitely got the correct gauge with the yarn and needles specified in the pattern.
