Pattern Note
Shirley Bowles tells us that this pattern will lay flatter if you knit 2 rows at the beginning and knit 2 rows at the end of the pattern. We agree. Thanks, Shirley.
Instructions

Cast on a length to equal desired width in multiples of 2 (add 2 for base chain).

Row 1, 4, 5 and 8 (right side): K across.

Row 2 and 6: P across.

Row 3: K1 (edge st), * yo, K2tog *, repeat from * to * ending with K1 (edge st).

Row 7: K1 (edge st), * K2tog, yo *, repeat from * to * ending with K1 (edge st).

Repeat rows 1 to 8 until desired length. Fasten off.

There is no need to go out and get expensive fuzzy yarn. This stitch is thick and comfy and works up fast. You can adjust the thickness by working yarn together over larger needles. For best results in finishing, leave ends long and weave the ends through the work using a tapestry needle.
