Knit on any knitting machine, any width.
I used a dress yarn along with a very, very thin yarn on tension dial at 9, using a standard 4.5 mm gauge machine.
Cast on 40 stitches.
Setup: 5 st in work, 1 stitch out of work. jjjjjojjjjjo…….etc
Pattern: repeat the following 20 rows.
A)Knit 20 rows.
B)Make the Holes: manually transfer stitch #3 of each 5 stitch group, onto its neighbour stitch. Leave the transfer needle in work so that it knits on the next passage of the carriage.
Knit as long as desired. Mine was 6 ft, 640 rows.
EMBELLISHMENT at the hem edges.
Thread desired number of beads on the yarn that is to be used for the crochet edge. Secure yarn at the starting point of the scarf edge.
*Crochet 5 chains, move bead through the crochet yarn, crochet 5 more chains. ( 1 bead is now on the crochet chain. Next, Slip stitch the 10 stitch chain stitches onto the scarf edge. * Repeat along edge of scarf.
Finish with a bit of steam.
