Scarf - adventures in YO K2tog #1

I had this yarn left over from another project (a drop-stitch one) which it really was not suitable for (the yarn clings to itself too much for the drop stitches to drop without a lot of encouragement). So I decided to knit up another scarf.

I liked the simple laciness of the YO K2tog I've used on a lot of my other patterns, but I wanted to give this a bit more substance, so I put in some garter stitch columns.

You Will Need
2 Skeins Adriafil Quarzo (or other worsted weight yarn - I imagine Rowan Kidsilk Aura would be great for this)
1 pair 6mm needles

The Pattern
Cast on 26 st (I used a loose cable cast on)

Row 1 (and all subsequent rows): Slip 1, k1, [YO K2tog, YO K2tog, YO K2tog, K2] to end

Continue until scarf is approximately 150cm long (or as desired)

Cast off (this lace bind off from Knitting Daily works well)

Gauge is not critical, but approx 14 st and 18 rows to 10cm square in pattern. This gives a scarf that is approximately 19cm wide.
