Sorry, no pics---I'm actually only 10 rows into it, but it's coming out really nice. I just wanted to share for those beginners who want to do something other than knit every row.

I'm using Red Heart Plush worsted weight in red on size 17 needles. That probably sounds weird, but it creates a lacy effect without any effort. I'm lazy!

Cast on 16 stitches. Knit two rows. Then it goes like this:

1st row of pattern: k,k,k,p,p,p,p,p,p,p,p,p,p,k,k,k
2nd row of pattern is all knit.

Keep on going til it's a scarf Smiley

The advantage is you can get a really nice stockinette stitch scarf in cheap yarn without it getting all curly (I just found out you can't really block cheap yarn). Or so I hope, that's the plan. I'll post an update when I have tested this theory more thoroughly---right now I'm watching Pirates Of Penzance while I knit and I get all excited about what I'm knitting and then you add pirates and it's all over.

Oops, and then finish with two knit rows to finish off the border.

Okay, it's still curling but I think it still looks good--might even help it out! Since it's so lacy I think it's a bit wide for a winter type scarf so i may just let it curl and then lace it up in the back like a corset and make it a sexy little summer scarf! Aaaaaaaaaand I just ashed on my yarn. No smoking while knitting!
