Super easy beginners scarf!

I found out that this type of scarf is called a BAKTUS SCARF
Its really easy - all the rows are knit
You have some short rows and that's about it!

You will need - 100gms or about 420 yards of 4 ply or sock weight yarn
# 5 US needles (3.74 mm)
Fine yarn works the best but you can use up to double knitting or worsted weight. If you use the thicker yarn I would also use larger needles - go up by one size at least

YO: yarn over,
ssk: slip one stitch, knit one stitch, pass slipped stitch over
K: knit

Cast on 10 sts
Row 1. Knit
Row 2. (short row) Knit 7,  put yarn in front of needle, slip one, turn, knit 8, turn
Row 3 knit
Row 4 Knit
Row 5 - like row 2
Row 6: k 8, YO, knit till end.

Repeat these6  rows until you have about 70 sts (or used half your yarn!)
Now the decreases start:

Row 1: knit
Row 2:(short row) Knit 7,  put yarn in front of needle, slip one, turn, knit 8, turn
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: like row 2
Row 6: K7, ssk, YO, ssk, knit to end
Repeat …
