I used almost half of a skein of a Simply Soft in Watermelon. I used size 9 circular needles to accommodate the large number of stitches.
The knitted cast on will be used throughout the pattern. You can find video tutorials online if you do not know what this means.
Knit one row
Co 4 at beg of row, k4, yo, k2tog, k2
Co 4 at beg of row, k4, *yo, k2tog, k2; repeat from * to end
Repeat this row until you have 120 stitches.
For next 10 rows: co 4 at beg or row, k4, (yo, k2tog, k2) 3 times, k to last 12 sts, (yo, k2tog, k2) 3 times
For next 8 rows: co 4 at beg of row, k4, (yo, k2tog, k2) twice, k to last 8 sts, (yo, k2tog, k2) twice
For next 6 rows: co 4 at beg of row, k4, yo, k2tog, k2, k to last 4 sts, yo, k2tog, k2
For next 2 rows: co 4 at beg of row, k across
Bo in knit.
Weave in any ends, and then you're finished!
This scarf is 8"x80". You could also use larger needles if you wanted this scarf to be more open and lacy.
