Here are the particulars:
SPECIAL OLYMPICS SCARF - KNIT
Measurements: 6" wide x 57" long.
Gauge: 2.5 stitches = 1” in garter stitch
Row gauge is not critical.
1 skein – Red Heart Soft Yarn – Navy (#4604) – A
2 skeins – Red Heart Soft Yarn – Really Red (#9925) - B
Needles: Size 13 (9 mm) needles
Hook: Size N15 (10 mm) crochet hook
Using A and B together, cast on 15 stitches, using a knit cast-on.
Work in garter stitch until the scarf measures 60” long.*
Double up Color B and, using a size N15 (10 mm) crochet hook, crochet into the garter stitch "nub" selvage at the row ends. Crochet in slip stitch up the scarf and all the way around, making a border.
Bind off and weave in all ends.
*The length shortened due to the crochet border step, which is why a length of 60" is knitted, but the finished result is 57".
