The Girly's Skinny, Squishy Scarf.
2 balls The Cat's Meow - Patina (acrylic/wool/mohair/nylon/polyester blend) or other thick/thin soft type yarn. About 83 yds/ball.
One set 7mm knitting needles. No U.S. equivalent. U.S. 10 1/2 or 11's will do the job beautifully though.
Gauge: Doesn't matter. If you tend to knit tightly, use larger needles, if you tend to knit loosely use smaller needles.
Cast on 15 sts.
Row 1: *K2, P1* repeat to end.
Row 2: K1, *P2, K1* repeat to last 2, P2
Repeat rows until you are nearly out of yarn.
Weave in ends.
Notes: The Scarf will measure about 44" long and nearly 4" wide. It is not completely reversible. One side looks like stockinette without the curl and one side shows the ribs. Both sides look good though.
If you drop a stitch with the thin part of this yarn, it will run away until a thick part catches it so be prepared to rip back. The thick slubs of wool often threatened to pull apart which means that if you do need to rip back, be as gentle as you can.
Bernat has a yarn very similar to The Cat's Meow and is reasonably priced.
This was a super quick knit. A great last second knit for someone who dropped off a Christmas present you were not expecting and now have to add to the list of people to buy something for or knit something for.
