Sunset Scarf

This is scarf beautiful, soft and so huggable - I'm finding it hard to give to the recipient. You can get decent sized scarf (4.5" x 60") out of one skein of Angel Hair (pictured in "Berry"). Making this scarf is a quick and satisfying knit. It's perfect for a luxurious feeling gift at a reasonable price that can be done in a hurry (I knit this in about 2 hours while chatting with those around me). Instead of garter stitch, I felt that this yarn was more interesting to knit with the simple box stitch, giving the scarf just a little more texture, which may be hard to see in the pictures.

Anyway, on to the recipe:
Size 13 needles (straight or circular, whatever your preference is for knitting flat).
1 skein Joann Sensations Angel Hair in Berry (or color of choice)
Darning needle to weave in ends

CO 14 sts
Row 1: K2, *P2, K2; rep from * to end
Row 2: P2, *K2, P2; rep from * to end
Row 3: rep row 2
Row 4: rep row 1
Repeat rows 1-4 until you have just enough yarn to cast off (approximately 55 pattern repeats give or take a repeat).
Cast off, weave in the ends. You're done! How fast was that?
