Easy Scarf

I can't believe that I forgot to post the pattern for a scarf that I created for one of my beginner knitting classes! Anyway, it's never too late....

Cast on 41 stitches (long-tail method)
Row 1: K1 P1 *repeat
Row 2: K1 P1 *repeat
Repeat these 2 Rows Twice (Total: 6 rows)
Row A of Pattern: K1 P1 K1 P1 K3 P3 K3 P3 K3 P3 K3 P3 K3 P3 K3 P1 K1 P1 K1
Row B of Pattern: K1 P1 K1 P1 P3 K3 P3 K3 P3 K3 P3 K3 P3 K3 P3 P1 K1 P1 K1
Repeat Rows A and B until scarf is 47" (or 1" shorter than desired length)
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 for a total of 6 rows
Cast Off
Finishing: Tassel Ends: cut yarn into length desired (approx. 6 strands per tassel); scarf will take approx. 5 tassels per edge

I recommend using a worsted weight or sport weight yarn.
