STITCH EXPLANATION

K1, p1 Rib (worked over a multiple of 2 sts)

Row 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of row.

Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
 
Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.
 
NOTES
  1. Scarf is worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with ribbed edges.
  2. To make neat side edges on the Scarf, slip the first st on every row. Slip as if to knit or to purl, with yarn in back or in front, whichever looks neatest to you!
  3. Edges of the Scarf will have a tendency to roll slightly. To help eliminate this rolling, just block your finished Scarf following the simple instructions under Finishing.
