Knit one, Purl one .....

Make this cute scarf in a weekend. 
I used a size 13 circular needle and this yarn. 
Cast on 114 stitches. 

Join the last cast on stitch to the first one to make a circle. 
If you want your scarf to be a möbius , twist a few stitches about half way around. Knit one, purl one all the way around. 

Continue around ( keep track of where you are by the thread tail from your case on) . 
Keep going until your scarf is 5 to 5 1/2" wide.
Then cast off. 
To cast off , knit 2. , then slip the first stitch over the second stitch off the needle. Knit the next stitch from the other needle , then slip the previous one over that one, off the needle . Do this until all stitches are off the needle. 
Clip the tail, pull it through the last stitch and weave it into the scarf. 
Now block your scarf, so it will lie flat. 
I pun mine to the ironing board and spray it with water. 

Let dry ( overnight) unpin and enjoy!
