Knitted Scarf for a Gift

 I wanted to gift a knitted scarf.  Finally, a project!  I'm not certain where I got the stitch pattern, probably from a friend.  It is an easy one.

I casted on 26 stitches with size 8 needles with Red Heart Soft.   It is approximately 5 1/2" x 36" and be wrapped one more time around the neck.

The pattern is 
Row 1:  *k2, knit into back of next stitch, purl 1*, until the last 2 stitches, k2.
Repeat this row the entire length you want the scarf.  It took roughly 3 oz.

I'm not certain what happened to the color with the first two photos.  The photo below is more what the color looks like which is Grape. 

OK, so it's not much as far as making things this year, but I'm going to do my best to get a lot more accomplished in 2017.

Happy New Year, everyone!

WOW...I missed this post! Lovely scarf and the color is so beautiful. Was it tempting to keep it yourself!? HAHAHa...I would have thought so. But you have a good heart and gave it anyway! You did a fine job! I cannot seem to do patterns any more - just have to knit so simply.

Thank you, Catspec. I don't wear scarves often so not problem gifting it.

Thank you, Poorpiglings Place. I'm glad I wrote the stitch pattern here because I'm going to make her a top using the same stitch pattern, an easy one by the way. I should get started soon.

This is a beautiful scarf, Gloria! Grape (or any deep purple) is one of my favorite colors to wear. I only used to know knit and purl, and even that was too complicated for me. Lol. I'm sure the recipient was pleased!

Thanks, SewLibra, for your comments. Yes, she seemed to like it and immediately put it on. Ha--I don't go much beyond knit and purl either. After that it starts sounding like a foreign language.
