Mikado Ribbon with a little Splash Knit Scarf
a free knitting pattern

Mikado Ribbon is a 50/50 cotton/viscose rayon ribbon. This short accessory type knit scarf was knit with one ball of Mikado in color #7300 (rainforest print)  and just a little of a new color, Picnic #7235,  Splash (our eyelash yarn)

How to Knit this Scarf

Cast on 120 sts on size 9 circular 26" needles loosely (I used Crystal Palace Bamboo needle)
Knit in garter stitch (knit every row)
Every 8-10 rows knit two rows of Splash
Knit until all Mikado is used up - ending with at least 4 rows of garter st in Mikado
Bind off LOOSELY to avoid bowing of the edge. If you have problems with casting off loosely, use a size 10.5 needle or larger for casting off.

To make a longer scarf, use 2 balls of Mikado Ribbon and cast on 200 sts.
