Pattern provided by:
The scarf is 7" wide and 59" long without fringe.
The stitches and rows mentioned here are for Yeomans Cashmilon 4-ply acrylic. This pattern is very simple and could be knit using almost any yarn by adjusting the stitches and rows to your own gauge.
1. Select 30 needles on each bed, set pitch to H, tension 0/0, make zigzag pass to the right.
2. Hang cast-on comb, move pitch back to P, set carriages for circular knitting. (Slip opposite direction each bed, just like your ribber cast-on.)
3. Set row counter to 0, tension to 6/6. Knit in the round until the row counter reads 450. You have knit 225 rows.
Note: Some ribbers knit tighter than the main bed. Do a small sample and adjust the tension if necessary.
4. Set the row counter to 0. You are now going to knit a U shape.
Brother: set left part button on the main carriage and right part button on the ribber carriage, and make 2 passes. Reverse part buttons to R main bed, L ribber, make 2 passes and repeat until the row counter reads 280.
Studio: set the main carriage to slip, leave left side lever forward, push right side lever back, set right slip on ribber to 0 and make 2 passes. Reverse side levers on the main bed, slip button on the ribber, and make 2 passes. Repeat until the row counter reads 280.
5. Change back to circular knitting, as in step 2, set the row counter to 0 and make 450 passes.
6. Transfer ribber stitches to the main bed, knit 1 row across and bind off using the tapestry needle back stitch method.
7. To finish the opening: work a single crochet into the second stitch from the edge. Do not pull tight! Chain one, work a single crochet into the third stitch of the second knitted row, repeat around the opening. You will be working a single crochet into the third stitch on the second knitted row of stitches with a chain 1 between.
8. Block and attach fringe if desired.
