Twin Scarves

I started working on Christmas presents early this year (who doesn't?), especially since I have five scarves on my list. I just got back from visiting my fiancee, and I've become rather attached to his little brother and sister. They turn ten I think this month (see my profile picture). I found out their favorite colors from the future DH. For SIL I shortened a lace scarf that I had lying in my stash (which had been supposed to be a panel for an afghan that never got finished). For BIL I used a mostly-full ball of WoolEase Thick & Quick. It's really a simple pattern, but I couldn't find any pre-teen scarf
patterns that I liked.
Ricky's Scarf
Size 13 needles
WoolEase Thick n Quick, 1 skein Lemongrass
Finished measurements: 6 inches wide by 45 inches long (or desired length)
CO 14 stitches.

Row 1: Slip first stitch as if to knit, K1 *P2, K2* across
Row 2: Slip 1, purl across

Continue in this manner until A) scarf is as long as you want or B) you only have enough yarn to bind off. BO in pattern.

Hey Jenny! Yes we got your letter and I just found the letter I wrote in my desk. Oh well.

We are at the same Norfolk address.

I'm going to check out your etsy shop! Thanks ahead of time for the blanket. Sadly Max's got damaged when it was in storage in my parents basement. We used it for the first two years! It was a great blanket.
