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!
