WARM AND WOOLY SCARF
Using worsted weight yarn and a 29" long circular needle size 8 or 9 or using DK weight yarn and a 29" long circular needle size 7, cast on about 150 to 175 stitches; knit every row (the garter stitch makes for a fluffier and therefore warmer scarf).
At the end of each row, you can make a very neat end by: knit to within the last 3 stitches of the row; bring the yarn to the front as if to purl, and slip the last 3 stitches as if to purl.
Next Row, when you pull the yarn from 3 stitches back to knit the first stitch, it causes the end stitches to wrap around themselves and make a neat finished edge. BUT if that's too much trouble, you don't have to do it.
Continue until the scarf is as wide as wanted; bind off loosely.
Fringe if desired. This is especially pretty if you use a variegated, heather, or flecked yarn.
With DK yarn and size 6 or 7 straight needles, cast on about 36 stitches or a multiple of 6).
For the first three rows: K3, P3 straight across.
For the next three rows, P3, K3 straight across. This makes a pleasant little texture and is great with a solid color yarn (also it is a reversible pattern - no front or back to the scarf).
Knit as long as desired; bind off; fringe if you like.
These are three of my favorite quick scarf patterns - hope one of them will help you! Good luck - Barbara
