This makes for a very nice, flexible, breath-through-able, but warm and cozy scarf. (Just like the one I made for my friend, Kym!)

6 x 50 gm sport or DK weight yarn (3 each of two different colours, if you like.)
6 mm needles

Using two strands of yarn as one, cast on 50 stitches. Knit the first two rows, then work in the following pattern:

Row 1: k1, *k2tog, yarn around needle twice, k2tog. Repeat from * to last stitch, k1.
Row 2: k1, *k1, k1 into first yarn wrap, p1 into second yarn wrap, k1. Repeat from * to last stitch, k1.

Continue in this pattern until scarf is desired length. The scarf I made reached about 6 feet in length. Knit 2 rows and cast off.

Wash and block. You may want to give it a stretch to make it longer and narrower, or block it to be a shorter, wider scarf/shawl. Whatever works for you
