Scrunchable Scarf
I want to make a scrunchable scarf using my mmmmmmmmmmmalabrigo. For those of you who have made it with malabrigo, how many stitches did you cast on and what size needle did you use?

Thanks!

Jodi

I used size 8 needles and cast on 29 stitches (so I have a 1 stitch slip-stitch border on each side). With one skein mine turned out about 5 feet long.

Ok, so did you slip the first stitch and the started the k2 p1 pattern and at the end slip the last stitch?

Does that sound right?

My brain isn't functioning as good this week, so please forgive me.

No, you cast on multiples of 3 + 2

you slip the first stitch of each row, and just knit the last stitch.
