Toasty Twisty (free pattern!)
Hey everybody--
I just designed this quick scarf and am posting the pattern here in case you want to make them for Christmas gifts. This is really, really warm. I did not use any yarn I want to name here to make up the pattern, but suffice it to say that if you use a nice worsted weight, soft yarn it will be nice. Good for kids and adults, male and female. It's cabley but also reversible, with no ugly side! The ends flare nicely as the pattern draws up the fabric somewhat in the body of the scarf.

TOASTY TWISTY

Materials: 6-8 ounces worsted weight yarn (depending on length you want)
Size 10 knitting needles
Gauge: Not crucial

Note: Slip first stitch of every row as if to purl.

Stitch Explanation: RT (right twist). Knit next 2 stitches together, but do not slip off left needle. Knit into first stitch again, then slip both stitches off the needle.

Cast on 34 stitches.

Rows 1-4: Knit (see note above)

Row 5: Slip 1, K 1. (P2, K2) 8 times.

Row 6: Slip 1, K1. (RT, P2) 7 times. RT, K2.

Row 7: Slip 1, K1. (P2, RT) 7 times. P2, K2.

Row 8: Slip 1, K1. (K2, P2) 7 times. K4.

Repeat rows 5-8 until scarf is desired length.

Knit 4 rows. Bind off.

Here's a close up of the stitch detail because it doesn't show much in the first picture. Both sides look the same:
