Question about Scrunchable Scarf
The directions for the Scrunchable Scarf says to:

Cast on a multiple of 3 sts (plus one on each edge for a selvage).

The pattern repeat is just K2, P1 - on both sides.....


I'm unsure as to whether I'm supposed to begin and end each row with a knit stitch, doing the pattern repeat between....or do I simply begin each row with "K2, P1".

It sounds like you just K2 P1 no matter what you're doing. Although the mention of a selvedge makes me think that maybe you're supposed to slip your first stitch. Ingrid will probably be along soon to clarify.

I'm getting too predictable.

Don't count any selvedge stitch in your pattern count. I would slip the first stitch as if to purl and knit the last stitch on every row for a scarf. Your pattern stitches fall between these.

Ingrid's predictability is NOT a bad thing ... she's always got the answer. I just did one of these scarves and did exactly what Ingrid said. It worked great.

Whoa..I didn't know that, Ingrid! Thanks for sharing! You should write your own book!
