This pattern is for a tube scarf, however, there are general instructions for tubular knitting which you can adapt to create anything you wish in tube knitting.
Easy to knit on one row.
Cast on double the number of stitches required for the finished width.
eg. if you are working at a tension of 8 sts to the inch in stocking stitch (3 ply on a size 11 needle), you would need 80 sts for a 10 inch width in ordinary stocking stitch; therefore would case on 160 sts for tubular knitting.
Cast on an even number of sts.
1st and every row: * K 1, bring wool to front, slip 1 purlwise, take wool to back; repeat from * all across row.
For a light-weight scarf in 2 ply, use No. 9 needles.
Cast on 160 sts.
Work in tubular knitting for 46 ins.
Cast off, knitting 2 tog all across row.
