Rachel and Rebecca Scarves - Free Pattern

Rachel and Rebecca Scarves

1 skein Homespun
Size 10 ½ needles

Cast on for 20 stitches for Rachel and for 28 stitches for Rebbecca.

Slip 1 stitch purlwise, *knit 2, k 1 in the back of the stitch, purl 1*, repeat from * ending knit 3.

Repeat this row over and over and over on both sides till almost out of yarn and bind off.

Make it wider or narrower by subtracting 4, or multiples of 4, stitches.
Pattern is a multiple of 4 plus 4, so 8 would be the narrowest you could make.

This pattern looks the same on the front and the back and has a neat pleated look and is excellent for those times when you need to be productive but are distracted by what is happening around you.

I made these scarves for my sons' girlfriends for Christmas. My Mom brought my oldest the little Pinnochio ornament from Germany years ago. It is strung with elastic and is poseable.

What do you mean by "knit 1 on back of stitch?

There is a very clear picture on how to knit into the back of a stitch here
