Seed Stitch Scarf
This is a very nubby, textured stitch and is great for a guy's scarf. It's a simple 4 row pattern:
Cast on an even number of stitches.
Rows 1 & 2: K2, P2. Repeat to end of the row.
Rows 3& 4: P2, K2. Repeat to end of the row.
I slip the first stitch of every row to create an even edge, but not slipping them makes a textured edge which also works.
This scarf is a gift for our choir director. What you don't see are the four gift cards attached to corners.
For this project, I used size 10 bamboo needles and Caron By The Pound yarn. It's a yarn that's very inexpensive, but knits up very nicely. I use it a majority of the time with great results. It is my worsted weight yarn of choice.
