Mini Mochi Rainbow Scarf

This Scarf Pattern uses only 1 ball of Mini Mochi
This scarf is soft and light. A rainbow of color to wear around your neck. It is very easy to knit.

1 ball Crystal Palace Mini Mochi (50 grams/195 yards)
(sample shown was knit in color #101 'intense rainbow')
Size 5 or 6 needles or size needed to obtain desired fabric
(if you tend to knit tightly, use size 6)

Finished size: 4” X 55” (or use 2 balls for an extra long scarf)
Gauge: 14 sts = 2 inches in Beaded Rib St
Abbreviations: k - knit, p - purl

Cast on 29 stitches loosely. Knit 2 rows
Note: the outer 3 sts are always knit (=garter stitch border) to help keep edges of scarf from rolling.
Work in Beaded Rib Stitch.

Beaded Rib Stitch:
Row 1: K3, *k1, p1*, repeat across row, ending with K1, K3.
[K3 for garter edge at both ends of Row 1]
Row 2: K all sts
Repeat these 2 rows until almost out of yarn.
End with a Row 2.
K 2 more rows.
Bind off loosely.
Wet scarf in warm water, roll in big towel and lay flat to dry. Block flat at approx. 4 inches width.
