CO 33 stitches. Work seed stitch for 5 rows. Seed stitch- R1- K1, P1, repeat. R2- Repeat row 1. *Work 5st seed stitch at beginning and end of each row while working the chart.

Scarf Row 4: Make the next row of stitches, continuing with Color 2, but this time follow the pattern (still looking at the first row) in the opposite way as you did before. Instead of knitting the white squares and purling the black squares, do the reverse: Purl a stitch for every white square and knit a stitch for every black square. Read the pattern from left to right. Scarf Row 5: Bring Color 1 (remaining from Scarf Row 2) behind the needle as shown and knit 23 stitches across.

Row 3. Continue using this method for each row in the chart. Repeat the chart the desired number of times. When you are halfway through the scarf, you can work the pattern upside down so the design is always facing the right way. When the scarf has reached the desired length work 5 rows in seed stitch. Cast off.
