Cast on a multiple of 4 stitches and knit 2, purl 2 across the row. turn work, and knit 2, purl 2. across.
this was my first scarf project also. Its a really a nice looking finish instead of just stockinette. I have a book that tought me to knit called
" the easiest how to knit book ever" and it had the needles, chrochet hook and 3 skeins of yarn, plus all the patterns were written out instead of abbreviated. It has a patter for a scarf, a hat, a change purse, a cell phone holder( SO CUTE) and really cute purse.
Ive made all of them, and they are SUPER simple! I got mine from BAM.
