KNITTING A TUBE SCARF ON STRAIGHT NEEDLES
Knit a scarf like a tube. so it looks the same whichever way you look at it, rather than having a nice smooth side & a funny bumpy side. However, here's a nifty way to do it with straight needles! It's easy & automatically lays flat with perfect edges. Cast on twice as many stitches as you think you need for the width. You're knitting two layers, hence the double number. always working on an EVEN number of stitches. What you're basically doing is knitting every other stitch on side A, then turning it around to side B and knitting the slipped stiches from Side A (and slipping the stiches you knitted side A). So you end up with the two layers. This can also be done using 2 colors, yielding one color on one sida and the second other on the reverse side.
