How long is the scarf when it is finisht??? do you have to knit half way and then back so that you have two the same small ends ??? I can not see how it looks like from begin to the end

What do you do with the odd rows?

The odd rows are the pattern rows, I suspect you mean the even rowsRow 2 (and all even rows) p all sts. hope this helps someone, happy knitting!

Yes, SSK does mean slip, slip and Knit, BUT after u slip the 2 stitches, take your left needle insert into front of slipped stitches so that you can knit the back of the slipped stitches. If you read the comments from her website, you will see that others had ques so creator of this pattern listed a video showing how it is done. This is actually a decrease stitch.

Row 1: *k1, p1* to end Row 2: *p1, k1* to end...I have a question, after I cast on 46 stitches do I start Rows 1 and 2 with the pattern above or do I start with the pattern below...Row 1: [yo, k10, k2tog] 3 times Row 2 (and all even rows): p all sts I'm just a bit confused...:)

After you cast on, you have to start with the pattern above-you do the 6 or however many rows of the seed stitch border before you start the actual pattern for the scarf. hopw this helps

ssk means slip slip knit. Hope this helps!

SSK does mean slip slip knit, but you have to knit the 2 slipped stitches together through back of loops. this particular abbreviation drove me up the wall for months until i found it on youtube. i just wanted to clarify for those having trouble with it as i did for so long.

What do you think?What does ssk mean?

I love this pattern and wonder if there is a way to make it work for a sweater given the wavy edge? Any ideas would be welcomed. thank you.
