Short Row Rippled Scarf
This scarf has been created to make a new version of the rippled scarf so as to avoid copyright issues with other designs.  I have never seen this done elsewhere.

I am using Bernat Big Value ww in a bright Red
9mm needles

Cast on 11 stitches

**Row 1: knit 1

Row 2: knit back

Row 3: knit 2

Row 4: knit back

Row 5: knit 3

Row 6: knit back

Row 7: knit 4

Row 8: knit back

Row 9: knit 5

Row 10: knit back

Row 11: knit 6

Row 12: knit back

Row 13: knit 7

Row 14: knit back

Row 15: knit 8

Row 16: knit back

Row 17: knit 9

Row 18: knit back

Row19: knit 10

Row 20: knit back

Row 21: knit 11

Row 22: knit back**

**Repeat these rows three times then:

Next Row: Knit 11
Next Row: Knit back

Repeat from row 1 again as many times as you want for your scarf. 

The pattern consists of knitting three repeats of the short row knitting across the 11 stitches and then one extra time across the whole row to advance the length a bit. 
One variation would be to purl back the rows creating a stocking stitch scarf that might be softer than this garter stitch version.

BTW, this is a really good time to learn to Knit backwards to avoid switching needles so often

I'm not quite sure I understand the concept of knitting back. Huh How exactly is that done?

And is this the scarf that looks really fancy? Tongue I seem to remember a ruffled scarf from the Washington Post once (I think), a red one with black edges.. Is this like that one? Because 11 sts is a hell of a lot easier to manage than 1000-something. Wink

Oh, and your pattern is very easy to understand. Smiley Props for that!

I answered this but I can never post on the first try with this board and like an idiot I didn't save the post before posting it.

to knit back is to turn your work by changing hands and knitting back onto the left needle any stitches that have been knitted onto the right needle.  this most often seems to be used  in regards to Short Rows.

This is not to be confused with knitting backwards which is something I heartily recommend for this pattern as all that changing over gets annoying.  In this case you would be purling back but you know what I mean.

Here's a video for knitting backwards
