If You Were Born Today, February 9
You are a person who is very committed to what you believe in, and sometimes very stubbornly so! You are a true artist at heart--creative to an extreme, and sometimes nervous if you are not channeling your considerable artistic talent constructively. Compassionate and concerned, you care much about others, but often come across in a detached manner. It is very important that you finish the projects you start, which is not always easy for you, in order to feel content and satisfied. Famous people born today: Alice Walker, Mia Farrow, Joe Pesci, Gypsy Rose Lee, Dean Rusk.

yarn: Karaoke 50% soy silk, 50% wool, 3 balls/~ 300 meters/150g (even though I did not enjoy this yarn for this project, I think with another striping or multicolored yarn this is a nice pattern)
size: 5" x 64"
Cast on 35 sts (I've used long tail cast on).
for the whole length of scarf: slip the first stitch as if to purl with yarn in front, and purl the last stitch of each row. This makes a nice braided like edge.
Sl1-K2-Psso: Slip (as if to purl) - K next 2 sts together - pass slipped sts over
K1fb: knit once in front and once in back loop of the same stitch
row 1: sl1, (K1,P1) 3 times, K1, K1fb, k7, Sl1-K2-Psso, K7, K1fb, (K1,P1) 4 times.
row2: sl1, knit to last stitch, Purl.
You might want to place a marker before K1fb and after the second K1fb.
Repeat these two rows until desired length.
Bind off. The beginning and the end will NOT match.
This pattern is for your personal use. You can share it with your friends or use it for charity knitting, but do not use it for commercial use. If you print it make sure my information is included.
Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and, with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath…. This made him a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.
