I have 3 balls of Cotton DK Yarn and want to make a scarf. Can I use any scarf pattern with this yarn? If so, do I just adjust until I have the correct gage? Thank You! Alegar

I'd swatch it out, Alegar........take a look see at the gauge....what yarn is called for in your pattern........?

Good luck, sweetie!

I made all my scarves for last christmas in cotton DK, didn't bother with guage as it's a scarf. I just used the recommended needle number.

Cotton "grows" so maybe you should blend it with something

Take a look at the cotton cowl (could easily be a scarf) at www.purlbee.com...it's free..and of worsted weight..but could easily be DK weight....I don't know what your yardage is...but it's different..and it would work if you have enough yardage..
