Easy "Corduroy" Scarf
"I wanted to make a scarf as a for someone and when I asked their favorite color, the answer was "burgundy" and also "I like the texture of corduroy." There's a Lion Brand claret yarn that is burgundy--but has bits of red and purple in it--that I just love. I searched for a knit stitch that would be reminiscent of a corduroy texture. I did find a few things, but they were pretty complicated and labor intensive. With a little experimenting, I came up with something that I think looks more like corduroy and it is so easy, it's ridiculous. Make sure you cast on multiples of 3 plus two additional stitches. Otherwise the "right side" and "wrong side" won't align properly for this stitch. In the example, I knit all stitches to the back (it's how I learned to knit) and since that is looser, I used 4.5 mm needles)."
