Here's a simple and fun scarf project. I made up this pattern, based on a scarf I saw in a store.
Materials: Size 11 needles. Dazzle, or other novelty yarn.
Cut off and set aside 14 yards of yarn for fringe. CO 14 stitches. Knit 6 rows. *Work 1 row of elongated stitch. Knit 6 rows. Repeat from * until you've run out of yarn to do another set. Bind off. Cut fringe yarn into 18" pieces, and attach 14 strands (doubled up) to each end of scarf.
Elongated stitch (aka Drop Stitch): insert needle as if to knit. Wrap yarn 4 times around needle. Pull all wraps through stitch. On next round, knit just the front loop, letting wraps fall off of needle.
I have two videos that you can watch, if you want help with making this scarf...
