Easy scarf pattern

This is an easy but effective scarf pattern

you can use any type of yarn
cast on a multiple of 6 stitches (I used 48 sts, and #10 US needles)

1st row - K2 p2
Next row and every even row - knit as presented (p2 k2)

row 3 -* k2, YO, P2tog* till end

row 5* K2 P2tog,YO* till end

Thats all the pattern!
Knit as long as you like

You can see that both sides are effective so the scarf can be reversable!


K - knit
P - purl
YO - yarn over needle
P2tog - purl 2 together

Have gone through the comments and replies and can't find answer to the YO question about the end of Row 5. Please give me the answer. I'd really like to start this scarf. THANKS

What does "knit as presented (p2 k2) mean. Do you knit the even rows or do you (p2 k2) even rows?

Has anyone received a reply to their questions on this "Easy Scarf Pattern"? (aka Scarlet Fever Scarf).
I really like the pattern, but want to see the answers to the two questions before I start it. I see that it is 2 years ago. I just found the pattern today. That is a long time to go unanswered.

You p2k2 all even rows

The YO means that' before you knit a stitch you have to yarn over first , then do a regular knit stitch after ( did it say k2 together?) it looks weird because the YO looks unfinished but it works into the pattern and gives it an open weave look.
Happy knitting !
This is a very easy method to stitch the scarf. I really like this pattern and try this to stitch my own scarf myself. This post is really helpful for me to know how to stitch the scarf.

I think this was originally a Debbie Bliss pattern i had written down somewhere so please forgive me if there are any mistakes - as i keep saying, I am hopeless at writing down patterns and i just had some notes on a scrap of paper!

2 needle fingerless gloves

This is an easy pattern that can be adapted according to your skill.
I used worsted weight yarn and US 5 needles.
You need just over 50gms of yarn.
I also found that knitting them both at the same times ensures that they bout turn out the same !

Cast on 42 sts
Knit 20 rows in k2 p2 rib
on the 20th row place markers this way:
k20 place marker, k2, place marker, k20
the 2 sts between the markers will form the increase for the thumb.

Switch to stocking stitch (1 row K - right side- 1 row P - wrong side)
Knit to marker, (20 sts)
knit twice in the next stitch and in the one after that (the sts between the markers)
next row and all wrong side rows, Purl
Knit 20 sts (you have reached the marker)
knit twice in next stitch, K2 (till next marker) and K twice in the stitch before the marker

Continue this way, always increasing a stitch at each marker till you have 16sts between the markers.
k 2 rows then with right side facing, k20, CO 16, k20 (shaping the thumb)
next row, (W side) knit …

An easy shawl pattern

I wrote this as i knitted it so if you find any mistakes let me know!

The cast on sts are the top of the shawl, the cast off will be the bottom. This is a very basic pattern that you can then embellish - i used an eyelet pattern on random rows.(k2tog YO) The first stitches should not be slipped (as i usually do when knitting) but knitted.
You can use any yarn you like with its corresponding needles. there really is no gauge
You can also knit it to any size. Just remember that the final amount of stitches you have will be its width and the number of rows you knit will be the length. You can check that on a swatch and calculate accordingly

Cast on 7 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): k2, yo, k1, yo,place marker k1 place marker, yo, k1, yo, k2.
Row 2 (WS): K2 , P to last 2 sts knit last 2 sts (and on all WS)
Row 3 (RS): k2, yo, k to marker, YO, k1,move marker YO, k to last 2 stitches, YO, k2.
and so on

So to give a quick recap.
The 1st 2 sts of every row are always K followed by YO
Before the 1st marker, there…
