This is a quick scarf pattern I came up with. Enjoy.
Yarn: 1 skein Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Cranberry
Needles: US size 15 knitting needles (10mm)
Note: slip all stitches purlwise with yarn held in front
CO 15 sts.
Row 1: *K3, sl 1; repeat from *, end k3.
Row 2: K 1, *sl 1, k3; repeat from *, end sl, k1.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 for 24″ (60 cm)
For keyhole: work first 5 stitches in pattern, bind off 5 stitches, then work remaining stitches in pattern. On following row, work in pattern to bound off stitches, cast on 5 stitches using backward loop cast-on (or desired method), then work remaining stitches in pattern.
Continue in pattern for 10″ (25 cm), then bind off.
