Classic Diagonal Scarf

Without question, this is the most popular scarf pattern that we have in the store. We must have 10 versions of it in different yarns at any given time.
Simple enough for a beginner, it shows off the yarn nicely in the stockinette stitch rows. And because of the diagonal slant and the 4 garter stitch rows, just a light blocking will keep it from curling the way stockinette stitch fabric usually does.

MATERIALS: 2- 50g balls of Aran or Chunky weight yarn.
One pair of size 8mm knitting needles.

Cast on 22 stitches loosely.
1. 1st row and all odd numbered rows: K1. Increase in the next st by knitting into the front and then into the back of the stitch. Knit to the last 3 sts. K2tog. K1.
2. 2nd and 4th rows: Knit.
3. 6th, 8th and 10th rows: Purl.
