2 skeins of Lion Brand "Jiffy" yarn in Dark Grey Heather (or another Bulky weight yarn)
US size 10 1/2 (6.5mm) needles
Row counter (optional)
Swatch of pattern (25 stitches and 10 rows) should be approximately 6 1/4" wide and 2 1/4" long (still, since it's a scarf, gauge isn't critical). What's more important is that you like the width and length.
Using a long tailed Cast-on, CO 25 sts.
Work in pattern as follows:
Rows 1,3,5,6,8,10: k5, p5, k5, p5, k5.
Rows 2,4,7,9: p5, k5, p5, k5, p5.
Repeat these 10 rows until scarf measures approximately 58 1/5" (ending with row 5 or 10). Bind off in the following pattern: k5, p5, k5, p5, k5. Cut yarn leaving 6" tail. Weave in ends, and present to loved one.
