This scarf is very VERY simple, but you will need to keep count of your rows to get even squares!
I used 6.5mm (US 10 1/2) needles and Moda Vera Mousse yarn (which is 10 or 12 ply), but I wouldn’t use this one again, as it leaves little bits of fluff all over my partner’s suit – maybe a straight wool next time.
Cast on 24 stitches
Row 1-5: K4, P4
Row 6: knit
Row 7-11: P4, K4
Row 12: knit
Repeat until desired length – mine is 54 blocks long.
Gauge is not important, but if you feel the scarf is too narrow, then add more stitches in lots of 8, and if you feel it’s too wide, then reduce in lots of 8 – easy!
