Grace of the Jungle, pt1
Cast on 63 stitches. This pattern is stitched in stockinette stitching.
Selvage stitches are knitted with the brown color, and the rows are knitted as follows:
The first row on the right side:
Slip stitch, knit according to the chart till you have 2 stitches left. Knit 1, yarn over, knit 1.
Slip stitch, purl 2 stitches, pass the slip stitch over the two purl stitches. Purl until you have 2 stitches left. Purl 1 stitch, yarn over, Purl 1 stitch.
All other right sides:
(all rows except the first right side row) slip stitch, Knit 2 stitches, pass the slip stitch over the two knit stitches. Knit until you have 2 stitches left. Knit 1, yarn over, knit 1.
Knit 4 rows in the brown color (knit on the right side and purl on the wrong side).
Continue knitting according to the chart, where the brown squares are the brown color Lang Yarns Fantomas and the white squares are the yellow color.
Trap floats by weaving every 3 stitches to skip long hanging yarn threads on the wrong side of the scarf/cowl.
You use circular needles to knit, that means that you knit the first row on the right side, turn the scarf, purl the second rown on the wrong side, turn the work again and knit the third row on the right side, etc.
