 section twice. You will add an extra repeat section every 10 rows as the number of stitches
 on the needles increases.

 scarf) or the scarf is the size you desire, finish the top band as follows:
 (WS) K4, Purl across to last 4 st, K4.
 Knit 5 rows.
 Bind off loosely.
 Add ties to each point as desired.
 Corkscrew –
 Garter Stitch –
