I used the jaywalker sock pattern as a guide and went from there. here is the pattern i am using.
use two color ways, A and B
on size 10 aluminum straights
easy definitions- K f/b: knit a stitch, keep loop on left needle, insert right needle in the back and knit again (increasing a stitch)
DD- slip one stitch purl wise, knit two together knit wise (K2TOG), pass the slipped stitch over the K2TOG.
cast on 26 stitches with A
Knit two rows in A
Knit two rows in B
drop yarn (every two rows you will switch color. the yarns will be carried up the edge. trust me, it won’t be noticeable)
with yarn A
Row 1: K f/b, K 4, DD, K 4, K f/b, K f/b, K 4, DD, K 4, K f/b
Row 2: P 26
with yarn B
Row 3: K f/b, K 4, DD, K 4, K f/b, K f/b, K 4, DD, K 4, K f/b
Row 4: P 26
repeat rows 1-4, making sure to alternate yarns, until scarf is to length you like. end with 4 rows in garter (knit every row) then bind off.
