As I stated in one of my earlier posts, I made my dad a scarf when I first started knitting and well at the time it served its purpose. Dad informed me that it was somewhat short for a man his size and considering I made it out of a small skein of yarn it was most likely "short".
Anyway below is a picture of my dad and his Motorcycle Scarf:
Sorry for the darkness in the picture. The one where I used flash just didn't look right. The other picture is close up to show the pattern and the details of the scarf.
Motorcycle Scarf (the pattern)
2 skiens of Bernat Softee Chunky ( I chose the Grey Heather) A different yarn that you can actually block would be better to prevent curling. I was unaware of this in my early days of knitting and actually tried to block an acrylic yarn to no avail.
1 pair of # 8 (US) needles
cast on 32
Row 1-4 knit
Row 5 knit 3 purl across knit 3
Row 6 knit
Repeat rows 5 & 6 until desired length (end with a Row "5")
Knit 3 rows and bind off in knit.
You should end up with two knit "ridges" at the ends of the scarf.
This is my first attempt at writing a pattern so if you have questions or it doesn't quite make sense please let me know.

Just so you know..... I was unaware in the original posting that you CANNOT block acrylic yarn; however, if you were to make this with a wool type yarn you will be able to block it. Hopefully after that it will not curl.
