Gauge: approx. 26 stitches x 50 rows in brioche with yarn over on needle 3,5 mm = 10 x 10 cm.
1 sts in height = 2 rows. Choose the correct needle size to obtain the given gauge.
Info: To achieve the given measurements, I recommend that you first knit a gauge swatch. It is important to determine the correct needle size for the correct measurements. The needle size is just a reference. If you knit tighter/ more loosely, go down/ up a needle size. SHIMO scarf is worked flat in brioche stitch with yarn overs on a circular needle. The scarf is worked with 1 thread SHIMO yarn. It is worked bottom up with increases that are incorporated into the brioche pattern. If you work the larger version, use 2 cones (100 g) and 1 cone (50 g) for the smaller version.
