Rotini Scarf

 This scarf is called the Rotini Scarf. It's so fun to wear, and easy & relaxing to make. Great for any beginner - or a pro who wants something simple & meditative. It's all garter stitch!
 I used nearly 3 keins of Noro Silk Garden which comes in lots of tempting color combos.
Here's the pattern. I was given a xeroxed copy so I don't know if there's an original source.
(The pattern looked confusing to me just reading it, but once you start, it becomes obvious).
Needles: size 8 or 9
Yarn: worsted weight or DK - 200-300 yards depending on length wanted

Pattern:
Cast on 20
*knit 8, then turn
knit 8, then turn
knit 6, then turn
knit 6, then turn
knit 4, then turn
knit 4, then turn
knit 20*
Repeat from * to * until desired length.
When ready to finish, work the pattern until the last knit 4,
then bind off 10
knit 10
bind off.

(Just now copying it I see that I didn't do the end part correctly - I waited until the last row of 20 and then just bound off the whole thing. Since I'm such a basic knitter, I have no idea what the difference would be!).
Okay, Happy Knitting! There's still more winter in store for a lot of us.

  8. Love the scarf! Thanks for sharing it.

    Will you advise which IS the right way to bind off? Is it best to bind off after the full 20 stitch row?
