EASIEST FARROW RIB SCARF
This one is dead easy. REALLY easy. Yet fun to knit.
BONUS: It looks the same on both sides, perfect for scarf knitting. AND it's a scarf a man won't mind flinging 'round his neck.
Cast on a multiple of three ; *K2, p1*; repeat across every row.
Specifics for this scarf:
Three strands of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (yum) But ANY super bulky, bulky, or double strand of worsted will do. If you use a finer gauge yarn, just adjust the needle size/stitch count until you are happy with your result.
I used size 13 (9mm) needles and cast on 21 stitches.
Note: With standard bulky yarn, I would try casting on 24, and using a size 11 (8mm) needle.
Row 1: slip 1st stitch purl wise, k1, p1, *k2, p1* across
Rows 2 through infinity: repeat row 1.
Cast off. See? Easy :-}
