Seriously kids, on the list of things that rock this scarf has to be on there.
And me trying to look cute in the scarf...
Very thick, very warm, and it's own zig zag stripes.
Yarn: Bernat Softee Chunky in "Nature's Way"
Stitch: Double Stockinette found on Knitting on the Net
Row 1 (RS): *k2tog through back loop, slip the first of the 2 sts off needle; rep from *, knitting each second st together with the following st, until only one loop remains on the left needle; end k1.Row 2: *p2tog, slip the first of the two sts off needle; rep from *, purling each second st together with the following st, until only one loop remains on the left needle; end p1.
It can be worked over any number of stitches.
Length: Don't know, I used all the yarn.
Comments: Next time I would use a crochet bind off like the one found on the Yarn Harlot's page to make the end neater. Double stockinette does take minimal concentration/thinking skills if you are a person like me (easy distracted, little bit skittish, band teacher type).
Verdict: Love it!
