Gathered Scarf Pattern

This is a very easy stitch that you can use for anything.
I decided to make a scarf.
You will need about 300gms of yarn - sock weight - or 4ply
Best is using a sock weight yarn, and larger needles


cast on 49 stitches, using #5 US needles
Knit stocking stitch all along for this, the pattern is as follows:
Knit 10 rows ending with a Knit row.
turn,
(pattern)now on the purl row knit 9, with the Right hand needle pich up a stitch about 5 rows below the 10th row and put it on the left hand needle.
Knit the 10th stitch and the picked up stitch together
repeat K9, pick up stitch etc till end of row.
knit 5 rows, ending again with a K row
Now do the pick up stitch again but this time, k4, pick up stitch,* K9, pick up stitch* and continue to end
Knit 5 rows,(end pattern)


Repeat till the scarf is as long as you like
EASY!!

What i also like is that the stocking stitch curves around so that it looks like you have a tube - very soft and effective

This is the wrong side..see how the stitches have been picked up?
