Can I stretch ribbing?
Hi all, I'm a bit of a beginner with a question.

I'm in the middle of knitting a scarf for my husband. I didn't really have a pattern so decided to just make a rib scarf. I started just knitting k1, *k3,p3*, k1 (repeating between **). Sadly, it's becoming apparent that people make patterns for a reason, and my scarf looks ridiculous! It's 26 stitches across and the ribs are entirely bunched together so that the scarf is really thin and you can't even see there is a pattern.

Is there a way I can stretch the scarf horizontally so it's wider and you can see the rib pattern? I've tried tugging it, but it just springs back into place.

Thanks so much
