Slipping the first stitch makes a nice clean edge. Just do this on every single row and you'll see the pattern emerge.
sl1 kkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpk
(If the edge stitches are throwing you then just take them out. CO your original 21 and k2p1 only on both sides.)

Here's my scrunchable done just the way I said earlier sl1 and k the last. I used Encore Worsted.


YOU CAN DO THIS!

LOL - you guys are going to be SOOOOO sick of me before this is done!

Okay... let me just demonstrate what I *think* you are saying with a few rows. ((Bear with me)) (S is for slip)

(S)KKPKKPKKPKKPKKPKKPKKP(K)
(K)PKKPKKPKKPKKPKKPKKPKK(S)
(S)KKPKKPKKPKKPKKPKKPKKP(K)


What I am seeing here (and maybe its correct) is there will be a row of moss stitch going down, then a row of knit stitch going down. But I thought there was supposed to be a purl stitch going down too???!!!???
even if I just forget about the End stitches, it still comes out the same... so those don't throw me off... its everything in the middle, lol.

>>>maybe someone could type out a few rows of exactly how its supposed to look?<<<

aRgH!!!!
I am So sorry, you are probably Soooo annoyed with me!
I probably should just forget it and do a regular ribbed scarf... maybe I am too much of a beginner for this!!!
I don't know why I am just not seeing what you are saying.
So sorry again.

EkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpE

Can you see in the first 3 stitches, the row of knit that will form, the row of moss, then the row of purls? This is how you would continue on in pattern till you get to your desired length.

EDIT: Wow, colouring in a line changes it's dimensions a little but not to worry, you get the idea
So... the red row, is what the work looks like on the other side?
I think that is whats kinda throwing me off here.
Maybe I'll just start and it'll all just come together...

That's actually the best way to do a pattern. Trying to visualize, or work it out in your head without the needles in your hands can drive you bonkers.

you really only have one set of instructions to memorize for this pattern. I find it is probably easier than the ribbed stitch unless i get going and forget to switch stitches. It is better right not to not spend that much time thinking about what the previous row will look like or you will drive yourself crazy.

If you do the selvage edge like they suggest your pattern will ALWAYS be

kkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpk
kkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpk
kkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpk

(or that first K will be a slipped stitch if you use that instead...either one works.)

If you DON'T do the selvage edge then your pattern will be like this:

kkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkp
kkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkp
kkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkpkkp

etc

Well, I decided to just start on it... and guess what?

I can't purl.

I think what my problem might be is the yarn. its this super soft twisted type yarn. So my needle goes in between the threads all the time and then it gets fuzzy.

So I think I should probably try the scarf on some more "normal" yarn.

What do you recommend? Something that will be soft, but is relatively easy to use for beginners?

Malabrigo which can be found at Personal Threads has been popular for this one (well it can be found other places to but that's where I find it and is probably closest to you...lol)

I am using Misti Alpaca worsted from String of Purls right now. I am double stranding it though and am probably going to have to get another hank to make it long enough. That will make for a 'spensive scarf!
