I love the pattern, but I'm confused by all the corrections and additions. Can someone repost it correctly so I can try it?

Okay....

Cast on 2 sts, kfb both sts. (alt - CO 1, kfb - see which works better)

next row, k across
next row - kfb, k to last st, kfb.

Repeat these 2 rows until you get the width you want the scarf to be ending with the knit row. The width is measured from your cast on sts up one side, *not* across the sts on the needle.

next row - kfb, knit to last 2 sts, k2tog. knit next row.

Repeat these two rows until it's as long as you want; that's be easy to measure at that point.

next row - ssk (or BO 1 st) knit to last 2 sts, k2tog. knit next row. Repeat rows until there's 2 sts left - k2tog.

Hi Sue,

I want to make the scarf into a "keyhole" scarf, with a vertical slit to pull the one end through. I can figure out that this can be accomplished by dividing the number of stitches on the needle in half and working each side separtely for a few inches and then rejoing.

My question is after I divide, should I work the pattern of kfb, k to last st, kfb on each side of the divide?

Thanks,
candice

You would do the kfb incs only on the beginning and end of the row, not where you divide for the slit. Hey, good job, thinking up variations!

Sue,

I bet you are hoping I'll go away already with all my questions. I started the divide on the scarf and because I increase at the beginning of the row and decrease at the end, the slit in the scarf slants and I don't end up with the same number of stitches on the sides of the divide... every increase/decrease row there is one more in the first section. The slant would not be bad, except that it slants opposite of the "grain" of the scarf.

So, either I am doing something wrong, or the vertical slit is not a good idea. Maybe I should just bind off some stitches in the middle for 2 rows and then cast that many back on.

Suggestions?

Ooooh, I hadn't thought of that! I guess you'll have to inc at the beg of the row, dec at the split, inc the other side of the split and dec at the end of the row to keep the number of stitches equal on both sides. Sorry about that, didn't think it through all the way.

I'll give that a try and see how it looks. The rest of the scarf looks really pretty!
