Scarf three!

 This is for Alex, the Golden Retriever puppy who's got all the spunk. I decided to make her a zig-zag scarf, though it's more wavy then anything.

Alex's Wavy Scarf
Yarn: Lion Brand Jiffy Thick & Quick - Cranberry & Fun Fur white
Needles: US 13
Gauge: N/A
CO 3 stitches.   
Row 1:  K1, increase one, K1, Inc 1, K1 (5 stitches)
Row 2:  Purl.
Row 3:  K1, Inc 1, K to last 2 sts, Inc 1, K1
Row 4:  Knit.
Row 5:  P1, Inc 1, purl to last 2 stitches, inc 1, P 1
Row 6:  Knit
Row 7: as row 3
Row 8: Purl
Row 9:as row 3
 
Begin knitting in stitch pattern.
Stitch Pattern:
Row 1:  K1, inc1 , k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
Row 2:  Purl
Row 3:  As row 1
Row 4:  K1, inc1 , k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
Row 5:  Purl
Row 6:  As row 1.
Row 7:  Knit across
Row 8:  P1, inc 1, purl to last 3 stitches, p2tog, p1
Row 9:  Knit across.



Repeat the pattern 10 times (or for the desired length).

Here's the tricky part: You want to create a loop at the end of the scarf to pass the other end through. You can either cast off and then sew the end (that you just cast off) to the beginning of the 9th repeat of the pattern, or you and pick up stitches from that row and k2tog with those on the needle as you cast off.

On this one, I crocheted the white fuzz on the tip after I had cast off. I sc across and then double crocheted back, then tied off. Use any hook that best fits, or pick up and knit a few rows.

That is really cute! And could be worked in any color combo actually.

Thanks for the pattern.

That is such a cute scarf! I get kind of tired of making the normal straight scarf-y looking scarves, and this seems just as easy to make (and cute too!). Thanks for the pattern, too.

How are you increasing?  The only inc I know how to do is yarn over, and I don't see any holes... thanks!

I increase with the kfb or pfb techniques. Knittinghelp.com has a great video for both, about halfway down this page: http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/increases
