This is a great project for the changing seasons - a quick knit, and a cozy, generously sized scarf. Wrap yourself up in this cozy scarf, or get started on your holiday knitting!
Gauge: 14.5 stitches/22 rows = 4" (10 cm) x 4" (10 cm) in stitch pattern after gentle blocking
Size: Approx. 11 inches (28 cm) wide x 70 inches (178 cm) long
Berroco Vintage Chunky in Smoke, 4 skeins
Size US 10 knitting needles, or size needed to obtain gauge
Note: This pattern would also work for worsted weight yarn. Go down to a size US8 needle and follow pattern as written. The scarf will be narrower, but gauge is not terribly important for a scarf.
Cast on 41 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): K1tbl, *P1tbl, K1tbl, rep from * to end

Row 8: K2, *Sl 1, K3, rep from * 8 more times, Sl 1, K2.
