Endless Sunrise Scarf
by Laura Rose Reichardt
The Endless Sunrise Scarf is a light weight, thin scarf that loops around your neck so you don’t have to hassle with ends. It uses the simple drop stitch to reverse the Feather and Fan pattern in the “365 Knitting Stitches a Year Calendar” by Ed Martingale, that makes a nice hill shape in the stitches. With the drop stitch, it looks like there are rays of sun peaking over the hills (or at least it looked that way to me one Saturday after teaching a dance class to 3-5 year olds.) It’s a quick and simple knit and the yarn is so incredibly marvelous.

1. Make sure there are no twists in the scarf.
2. Fold so that the cast on edge is making a loop with the working stitches.
3. Knit 1, pick up stitch from cast-on edge with right needle, insert right needle into stitch on left needle, knit 1, BO first stitch and cast-on stitch.
4. Continue binding off for the rest of the stitches; pick up a cast on stitch for each working stitch to make a loop (following step 3)
*Alternatively, you can BO and then sew the ends together
