Tractor Tracks Scarf

Okay, here it is. Essentially, it is all knitting with strategically placed button-holes as a design feature. Please feel free to play with gauge and different yarns! This is how the sample was made:

Tractor Tracks Scarf

Yarn: 2 skeins Noro Silk Garden (or comparable Aran weight yarn)

Needles: Size 7 US

Gauge: approx. 20 st and 26 rows = 4" in garter stitch

Cast on 22 stitches.

Rows 1-4: Knit each row (garter stitch.)

Row 5: Knit 4 stitches, Bind-off 5 stitches, Knit 4 stitches, Bind-off 5 stitches, Knit 4 stitches.

Row 6: Knit 4 stitches, Cast-on 5 stitches (using e cast-on), Knit 4 stitches, Cast-on 5 stitches, Knit 4 stitches.

Row 7-10: Knit each row (garter stitch.)

Repeat rows 1-6 until it is your desired length. Bind off loosely. Block by soaking in warm water with wool wash for 20 minutes, carefully squeeze excess water out. Lay flat to dry.

Wear with everything!

Note: 2 skeins of Silk Garden are about 240 yards in case you are thinking of substituting another yarn. The gradual color changes are lovely, but solids, heathers or shorter color striping would be interesting! Share your results and enjoy!
