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!
