its the easiest scarf in the world
and good practice for Casting on and off
Cast on about 300 Stitches on a Circ needle
::XY:: Knit 2 rows of First color and turn your work each row
Knit 4 rows of each successive olor
except
3 rows of last color and cast off all 300 Stitches

the only hard part (and U gonna laugh) is NOT knitting in the round

I did not make up the pattern per se
I just took general directions from a lady in my LYS
I have one made of Homespun, its 8.5'

and BRIGHT rainbow colors
:D

Very niced indeed. :thumbsup:

And the scarf is pretty too! Did you have to use stitch markers while you were casting on? I tend to get fuddled after about 15 or so, I can just see myself counting away...

271...271...272... somebody get the phone!
where was I? :doh:

Thanks for sharing!

That's one pretty scarf. I notice you live in Maine where you can appreciate lots of scarf around you. I made one of those so far but in mohair leftovers and it's too warm.... They're so relaxing coz their nobrainers.
pretty colours!
