|Blue Denim Crescent Scarf|
I started by experimenting with starting with 20 stitches and adding two stitches (knit front and back) at the beginning and end of each row. I ended up with a VERY long and much too shallow scarf that didn't drape properly. I tried other variations on that theme, to no avail.
Finally I realized that you had to alter the number of cast-ons at the beginning (only) of each row, by starting with 3 for about 6 rows, then casting on 5 at the beginning of the next 6 rows and then casting on 8 at the beginning of all subsequent rows until reaching the desired length and depth. SIMPLE!!!!
I never really learned to cast on properly at the beginning of each row, except using the reverse loop method. But I wanted something that looked like it was knitted on, and that's exactly what this does. This tutorial proved to be perfect for me. There are other ways, I believe, but this works effectively, and I could manage it without difficulty. I knit Continental style, so this video worked especially well for me. OK, so I can't find THAT tutorial, but there are many. Try this one, or search on Pinterest for a variety of such tuts.
