I've been working on this scarf for nearly a month now (has it been that long?!) It's a very simple pattern - I like how it's classic, clean and yet still stylish.
Yarn: Cascade 220 (100% wool yarn; worsted/10 ply)
Needles: Size 8
Dimensions of finished scarf: Appox 5' long and 6" wide.
Cast on 36 stitches. (You can make it narrower/wider by using another number divisible by 4)
Row 1&2: (K2, P2) 9x
Row 3&4: (P2, K2) 9x
Repeat til happy with length of scarf.
Pretty simple, eh? It makes for some great train knitting while listening to music and/or podcasts.
P.S. Thank you to everyone out there who's been reading my blog this year. You guys definitely keep me writing - it's nice to know you're not writing into the ether...
Addendum: It took me a month to finish this scarf since I put it down and picked it up several times. Otherwise, it should take no longer than a week or two - depends on your knitting speed.
