Kudos Kerchief

The name is a double entendre. Kudos by Plymouth is the yarn and one receives kudos when wearing it. One skein is all it takes ( around 200 yards), and in this case the yarn does all the work. Of course any worsted weight would work, or even bulky yarn and bigger needles would produce a  wonderful result. If you are a beginning knitter and need a quick and easy project or an experienced knitter with a need for instant gratification, this is the project. Zoom zoom, done!
Needles: size 8 or whatever...gauge is not important. Kfb means to increase by knitting front and back in the same stitch.

Pattern: Cast on two stitches.
Row 1 K
Row 2 Kfb, K to end
Repeat row 2 until triangle measures about 15 inches.
Cast on 20 stitches on the next two rows for ties. Knit about 1.5"-2" for the ties. Bind off loosely. Is that easy enough?
OR: Slip the first stitch of every row and then Kfb in the next stitch. Whichever you prefer. I did the slip in this case. It's a habit.

The scarf measures 48" from tie end to tie end, and about 15" deep. Just right for a nice neckerchief.
