Olympics 2012 Opening Ceremony: Let the Knitting Begin!

I've been waiting for this all day! I decided to kick off the Olympics Opening Ceremony with an easy quick-knit project. I'm using Universal Papier Yarn to make this one skein scarf.
Want to make one, too? Here's the free pattern! For a longer scarf, use 2 skeins and knit to desired length.

Papier Easy Drop Stitch Scarf Free Knitting Pattern

Complete Scarf Measures: 4.5 x 48" 

You will need:
Cast on 13 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit 1, *yarn over, knit one.* Repeat from * to * across.
Row 3: Knit stitches and drop the yarn overs created on the previous row - you should have 13 stitches on the needle when you complete this row.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until only 1 yard of yarn remains. Bind off and weave in yarn ends. Give a gentle tug on both ends of the scarf to allow the dropped stitches to fall into place.

I love the matte and shiny finish of Papier Yarn, plus it has a tiny ruffled edge!

    Any chance you may have meant "Repeat rows 1, 2, & 3..."(not just rows 1 & 2)? Or did you mean just rows 1 & 2?

    Think they meant "Repeat rows 2 & 3..."

  3. I'm working on mine, I did rows 1-3 repeat and it looks great :-)

  4. Hmmm.... I'm thinking of trying this with some alpaca I spun last year...

    You can do it either way. However, to get this exact look it is a repeat of rows 2&3

    could I not convert this to a treble crochet and get almost the same results?
