Pattern makes no sense to me
This is supposed to be a curly scarf. It call for CO20stitches then pattern k8 and then k8back to the original needle. Then 6 then 4 then 2 then 20k again.

Somehow I don't get the curly part. There are 2 patterned sections but then it's just repeats.

What am I missing here?

By knitting only part of the sts for several rows, it's going to curl.

So knit 8 sts of the first row, then turn and knit the same 8 sts. Next row k6, turn and knit just the 6 sts, same for the following rows where you knit on only 4 sts. Then the row after that you knit all 20 sts. Once you do this a couple of times you'll see how it works out.
