Attention span of a caffeinated gerbil

Somehow, it happened that I'm the only person in our home without a scarf, despite the fact that I knit. But no more! I sat down a couple nights ago and decided I was going to do a big, fat, purple, basketweave scarf. So I did  Cheesy

It's mad heavy and overwhelms me a bit (it looks like it's wearing me), but it's super warm and I adore chunky knits. It worked up very fast because I used super bulky yarn and 13s. In total there's probably only about four hours of time in it. Not that it's a complex pattern (far from it), but if anyone's interested, here's how it's done...

CO 16 sts (or any multiple of 4. Or 5. Or whatever, really)
Row 1-4 k4, p4, k4 p4
Row 5-8 p4, k4, p4, k4
Repeat until it's the length you want

Pardon the horrible pictures. After a Winter of nothing but sun, we finally got our first snow  Smiley

Thanks everyone! It was so much fun to make I'm thinking of starting another.  Smiley

thelastkodama- absolutely! The pattern is so easy to memorize, and if you use a super bulky yarn and large needles like I did it knits up super fast.
