I made this easy and reversible unisex scarf for the Red Scarf Project using the Sock Wars Rib of Doom. It’s nice and thick and cushy and long. It requires almost no thought or skill, making it perfect for TV knitting. And it’s easy enough to knit in the dark, so it’s good for the movies or nighttime car rides, too.
But it’s all nice and substantial feeling. And I look like a big dork in this picture. But that’s not the scarf’s fault. You won’t look like a big dork in it, unless you’re a hopeless big dork and you always look like one. And at least you’ll be a warm and stylish big dork.
Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll be making some Christmas scarves with this pattern.
Skill level: easy peasy lemon squeezie
Time: 4 – 6 hrs
2 skiens Valley Yarns Berkshire (100g; 85% wool, 15% alpaca; 141yd) in 16 Burgundy (which any sighted person would describe as “red”), but would be dandy in any red heavy worsted yarn.

Not critical; just use a needle a size or two smaller than the label’s recommendation.
Row 1: Sl 1, *K3, P3, repeat from * to 1 st from end, K1.
Row 2: Sl 1, *K1, P1, repeat from * to 1 st from end, K1.
Repeat both rows until you use up all but 2′ of yarn, then BO kwise and weave in ends.
