SCARF - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle.

SCARF:
Cast on 36 stitches on circular needle size 7 mm with 1 strand Air and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands). Purl 1 row from wrong side, then work pattern as follows from right side: 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above, A.1 (= 5 stitches) 6 times in total in width, work the first 2 stitches in A.1, 2 stitches in garter stitch. On first row decrease 6 stitches (decrease is shown in diagram) = 30 stitches. On 3rd row increase 7 stitches (increase is shown in diagram) = 37 stitches. When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, repeat the last 6 rows in diagram until piece measures 151 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Now work A.2 (= 5 stitches) over every repetition of A.1. On 5th row in A.2 decrease 7 stitches on row (decrease is shown in diagram) = 30 stitches. On 7th row increase 6 stitches on row (increase is shown in diagram) = 36 stitches. When entire A.2 has been worked vertically, scarf measures approx. 156 cm. Cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= work 2 stitches in a stitch, i.e. work in front and back loop of stitch (= 1 stitch increased)
= nsert right needle through the middle of the 3 knit stitches 4 rounds below, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn back to right side so that yarn over is 4½ cm long (yarn over must not be too tight - the knitting tension will be too tight vertically), knit 3, insert right needle through same stitch, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn back to right side so that yarn over is 4½ cm long
= place the thread over the piece so that it is towards you, slip yarn over purlwise, purl 3, place the thread over the piece so that it is towards you, slip yarn over knitwise
= knit 2 stitches twisted together
= knit 2 together
= this square is not a stitch because stitch was decreased earlier, go directly to next symbol in diagram

These are the most confusing directions I've EVER encountered and I'm an experienced knitter
