KPG's Vertically Asymmetrical, Sexy Little Elongated Stitch Scarf
Skill Level: VERY Beginner
Yarn: Trendsetter's Yarn Dune (In any color), 1 ball
Needles: Size 15 Single Points
Cast on 9 stitches (I prefer long tail cast-on, but you can use whatever you'd like.)
Rows 1-6: Garter st
Row 7: Make elongated stitches by wrapping the yarn 3 times. (YO 3, k)
Row 8: Knit the stitches and drop the yo stitches (you should be back down to 9 stitches after this row)
Rows 9 - 13: Garter St
Repeat sequence until scarf is at desired length.
To make this asymmetrical (vertically), I sometimes garter st 4 or 5 rows instead of 6 in between the yo rows. I stagger this. It gives the scarf a whimsical and interesting look. But if you prefer a standard look, just follow rows 1-13 over and over again until you've reached the desired length.
You can add fringe or pick up stitches to add an interesting border.
