Technique used: Knit
Scarf measures approximately 36"/91.5cm long (circumference)
2 small stitch holders
In Stockinette stitch, 12 sts and 14 rows = 4"/10cm.
If you want a longer scarf, to wear in two loops instead of one, simply continue knitting until piece measures 3 times as long (108"/274.5cm).
Using a double strand of yarn, CO 31 sts.
Row 1 (RS): [K2, p2] twice, k5, p5, k5, [p2, k2] twice.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rows 3–10: Repeat Rows 1 and 2.
Row 11 (knot cable row): [K2, p2] twice. Make RH strip: Working back and forth over next 5 sts only (leave all other sts unworked for now), work 6 rows in St st (k on RS, p on WS); slip the 5 sts onto a stitch holder and allow strip to fall to front. Cut yarn. Slip next 5 sts onto a stitch holder and allow to fall to back. Make LH strip: With RS facing, rejoin yarn. Working back and forth over next 5 sts only, work 6 rows in St st; leave sts on left hand needle. Tie knot: With RS facing, cross RH strip in front of LH strip, then behind LH strip, and through the center opening (like tying a knot); allow RH strip to fall to the front.K5 from LH strip, p5 from 2nd stitch holder, k5 from RH strip (the RH strip is now the LH strip and vice-versa).[P2, k2] twice to complete row.
Row 12: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Repeat Rows 1–12 ten more times (for a total of eleven repeats).
Repeat Rows 1–6 once more.
If desired, block piece. Sew cast-on and bind-off edges together to create a loop. Using yarn needle, weave in all ends.
