I want to share with you an easy rib scarf pattern. Thanks go out to my friend, Jude in New Zealand for sharing it with her American friends.
Sock Yarn 1-2 skeins (I used Regia Design Line by Kaffe Fassett, color Turquoise)
1 skein will make a scarf approximately 36 inches x 5 inches. 2 skeins will double the length.
US#6/4.00mm straight needles
Yarn needle for weaving in loose ends
CO – cast on
BO – bind off
K – knit
P – purl
YO – yarn over
K2tog – knit 2 together
Pattern is a multiple of 4 + 2 (I cast on 42 stitches)
Gauge: not important
Row 1: K2, P2 to end, finishing with K2
Row 2: P2, K2 to end, finishing with P2
Row 3: K2, P2, *YO (bring yarn to back, then over right hand needle & to back of work), K2tog, P2*. Repeat from * to * to last 2 stitches, K2.
Row 4: P2, K2 to end, finishing with P2

Repeat Rows 3 thru 6 … forever or until you run out of yarn.
