RECOGNIZE THIS STITCH PATTERN?
I have a few balls of varigated yarn for a scarf.
Not knowing the brand I am guessing worsted weight as there were no labels on the clearance balls.
Does anyone recognize this type of stitch?

The pattern looks very much like their earlier Chocolate Bar Scarf kit pattern which is basically k1, p1; next row: p1,k1 then knit two rows to make the garter stitch definition...continue until scarf is whatever length you want.

My cast on...should be even or odd stitches...and to keep a nice edge that won't curl....slip the first stitch if it is a knit stitch?

On the picture you indicated I counted 29 knit stitches, so k29 and p28 for a total of 67 stitches. Website says #5 or #6 needles. After casting on I'd knit 2 rows of garter stitch then k1, p1 row, etc., and end with 2 rows of garter stitch before binding off.

Yes, slipping the first stitch gives a neat edge.

Please show a photo of your scarf before you go to far so we can see if I gave you proper directions .

Hmm...No. I'd add an extra stitch to the beginning and one on the end so you can start each row with a slip then K1, P1, or P1, K1. When you get to the last stitch knit it. (Slip the first stitch and knit the last stitch in every row.)

Emperors New Patterns?
Ah, I think you want an odd number of stitches so the alternating row will make a rib interrupted by the two rows of garter.

Is that what you were looking for on the two scarves mentions?'

I also think the chocolate bar scarf is the stitch same pattern as the one used in the "Variegated Knit-Purl Scarf."

I always thought it was funny how these yarn places had so many different patterns, then when I took to examining the patterns (or stitches from photos) I realized the reuse the stitch patterns with different yarns (or color patterns) and just give it a new name.

But, that is just better for independent designers.
