Here is a simple pattern for scarves. These have a shimmer and I get alot of compliments on them. They are made with Caron ribbon yarn called fabulous. Size 8 knitting needles.
Cast on 20 stitches
Row 1 knit
Row 2 k1, yo, k1, yo until end of row
Row 3 k1, slip yo off needle, k1, slip yo off needle until end of row.
Row 4 knit all the way across
Repeat rows 2 thru 4 until size you want. I usually make mine 60" long. Put on fringe.
