Horse shoe scarf



I made this scarf as the first of my christmas knitting projects. It was really quick to make, and used some left over Rowan Plaid which I had in stash. It's lovely and soft.......maybe I'll keep it for me:-)

Yarn: Rowan Plaid 2.5 balls
Needles: 8mm straights

CO 32 stitches
Work till desired length using 4 row pattern rpt as follows

Row 1 k2, p1, (k8, p1)3 times, k2
Even rows p2, k1, (p8, k1) 3 times, p2
Row 3 k2, p1, (C4B, C4F, p1) 3 times, k2

Cast off, block as desired.

Ideal for using up leftover chunky yarns.
