After knitting many scarves, sweaters, and wristwarmers, I have a collection of teeny half skeins lying around. I’ve decided to use up my scrap yarn to make an awesome gradient scarf based on a simple pattern that really lets the yarn shine. Hope you like it :)
The following list has all the supplies and tools you'll need to make this project.

CO: Cast on
This pattern can be adapted to make any sized scarf. The finished dimensions for this particular pattern make a scarf 6 inches wide.
The recommended length is 5 feet which will comfortably wrap around the neck once.
CO 32 stitches; You can make the scarf narrower/wider by using another number that is divisible by 4.
Slip the first stitch of every row. Slip knitwise if it’s a knit stitch and slip purlwise if it’s a purl stitch.
Rows 1-4: (K2, P2) – repeat til end of row.
Rows 5-6: (P2, K2) – repeat til end of row.
Rows 7-8: (K2, P2) - repeat til end of row.
Rows 9-10: (P2, K2) - repeat til end of row.
Repeat rows 7-8 and 9-10 until happy with the length of the scarf.
At end of scarf, add 4 rows of Rows 7-8 to create a ribbed pattern to match the beginning of the scarf.
Bind off, block, and wear!
