During the holidays, I decided I was going to knit something for a friend of mine as a Christmas gift. So I started knitting a yarn over (yo) pattern from scratch. After a couple of attempts, I finally succeeded in creating a knitting pattern for a super-cozy wide scarf from one skein of bulky yarn that was kicking around in my stash. Here's the pattern:

1-2 skeins of any Red Heart bulky/super bulky yarn (Baby Clouds, Light & Lofty, Snuggle Bunny). Just about any brand of soft bulky/super bulky weight yarn will do for this pattern.
Size 11 (8.0 mm) 14” long straight needles
Special abbreviation: yo k2tog – It’s a basic yarn over stitch, except you knit 2 stitches together after wrapping the yarn around the needle.
Cast on 26 stitches
Row 2: *k2, yo k2tog. Repeat from* up to last 2 stitches, K2Row 1: k to the end
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until you reach desired length
End with Row 1 (k to the end)
You may or may not wish to add tassels to the ends of the scarf. If so, try using a contrasting color to make the scarf look really cool!
I hope you find this knitting pattern as fun to do as I did. Please let me know what you think by posting in the comments section below, along with ideas on how you made this pattern even better. I look forward to hearing from you! :-)
