Simple and Stylish Scarf

"Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a [care]." - Gore Vidal

This scarf is simple to make and stylish to wear. Pair it with Madame Defarge's Beret in the same color for added style.

You will need:
  • about 300 to 500 yards worsted weight yarn in preferred color
  • Straight U.S. size 9 or 10 knitting needles
 Cast on 24 stitches, knit 2 or 3 rows. On the 4th row, purl the whole way across. On the 5th row, knit 6 stitches, purl 12, then knit the last 6 stitches. On 6th row, purl the whole way across. Repeat until scarf is about 3 to 4 feet long, and has the smooth stockinette panel flanked by the garter stitch border all the way along. At the end, knit three rows and bind off loosely.

Wear in cold weather, when a touch of style is needed.
