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.
