Kelp Bed Scarf (aka One-Row Pleated Scarf)
Materials: any yarn you would like to use. The crisper and/or stretchier the yarn is, the better it will retain its accordion pleating. For the orange scarf shown I used "Fibra Natura Flax" linen in Tangerine.
Needles: Not too critical, but sized to knit your yarn somewhat loosely (I used U.S. 7)
Cast on a multiple of 5 + 1 (For my orange scarf I cast on 31ss.)
EVERY ROW: *K3, YO, P2tog* repeat to last stitch, K1
Continue until you reach desired length, get bored, or run out of yarn. (Mine is fairly long at 80 inches.)
Cast off loosely.
Note: Do not stretch to block, unless you want to remove the pleats.
I am super thrilled with the way this scarf feels and drapes. Despite having a closet-full of scarves, this is now my favorite.
