Knitting and Pearling

I recently finished knitting these two scarves and wanted to share the patterns. The one on the left is a diagonal ribbing and the one on the right is a checkerboard pattern.

For both patterns I used size 10.5 (6.5 mm) needles and used about 250 yards of yarn.

Diagonal Ribbing Pattern:

Cast on 24 stitches

R1: *K2, p2, repeat from* to end
R2: *K2, P2, repeat from* to end
R3: K1, *p2, k2 rep. from * to last 3 sts, p2 k1
R4: P1, *k2, p2, rep. from* to last 3 sts, k2,p1
R5: *P2, k2, rep. from* to end
R6: *P2, k2, rep. from* to end
R7: P1, *k2, p2, rep from* to last 3 sts, k2, p1
R8: K1, *p2, k2 rep. from* to last 3 stst, p2, k1
Continue repeating these 8 rows until you run out of yarn, bind off and weave in ends.

Checkerboard Pattern:

Cast on 20 stitches

R1: k5, p5, k5, p5
repeat for rows 2 - 5
R6: p5, k5, p5, k5
repeat for rows 7 - 10
Keep repeating these ten rows until you almost run out of yarn, bind off, and weave in ends.

I especially love the subtle colors of the checkerboard pattern. Beautiful! Mary
