Knitting Tip - Scarf Pattern

The perfect scarf pattern
A scarf should be warm and cuddly and, of course, not too heavy. To make sure that this season's trendy long scarves don't become a millstone round your neck there is a pattern that's particularly suitable: German rib.
This rib pattern is easy to knit and does not roll at the edges like stocking stitch. This way you can enjoy the entire width of what you've knitted. It doesn't narrow up like the usual rib patterns, and so saves yarn and weight. And it looks the same from both sides. The result is, so to speak, two right sides, so you don't have to arrange your outfit with every gust of wind.

This is how it goes…
Cast on an odd number of stitches and knit 2, purl 2. Start every row with K2 - this way the pattern jumps one stitch back and fore in every row. The result is a continuous knit stitch then a moss stitch (K1, P1 staggered), a continuous purl stitch and then another moss stitch.
The pronounced knit and purl ribs give a slight zigzag effect which makes the scarf more voluminous.

Another tip
Scarves are even more cuddly if you knit your favourite fluffy yarn along with the other yarn. Depending on whether you choose a contrasting colour or prefer to stay tone in tone, you'll have marvellous or subtle colour effects. Or how about stripes? For instance the basic colour self-coloured and the fluffy yarn as a print version or with colour gradient, or vice-versa. Whichever way, it's sure to be an eye-catcher.
