Multi-color scarf ?2sts
I was reading a post and am wondering what "2sts" mean - I have started a scarf with two colors (striping them) and not sure how many rows of each color I should do? Any suggestions?

2sts means 2 stitches.

However thick you want the rows to be, do an even number. This way you change the yarn on the same side each time and don't have to cut and weave. Carry it up the side, bringing the color you're using up from under it to hold it on the side. It will look different than the other edge, but weaving in ends for every stripe won't look so hot, either.
