This is a really effective stitch that really has only one row of pattern!
I made it using a soft merino yarn in a lovely orange color.
I uses 4mm needles but gauge here is not really important.
You need to have a multiple of 18 stitches plus 8 - 4 extra on each side
I cast on 44 stitches.
K - knit
P - purl
YO - yarn over
K2tog - Knit two together
knit 4 rows in garter stitch. thats the edge - also the last 4 rows, when you have knitted the scarf as long as you like, will also be in garter stitch
Row 1: K
Row 2: K 4, P to last 4 sts, K4.
REMEMBER 1st and last 4 sts are ALWAYS in K
Row 3: K4 (as always!!) *K2 tog (3 times) YO, K1( 6 times), K2 tog (3 times)* repeat from * to * till last 4 sts - K4
Row 4: K.
That is the pattern!!
knit as along as you like and end with 4 rows in garter stitch!!
