Peacock Scarf - Compact Chart

Directions:

With main color yarn cast-on: 
2 (pattern repeats) x 16 + 5 = 37 stitches 
If you want to knit a wrap or a blanket, just increase the number of repeats in the formula above.
Work row 1 with main color yarn. After that slide all stitches to the other end of the needles, join contrast color yarn and work row 2 with contrast color yarn.

Row 1 MC: k1, *sl1yo, k1; rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif.

After each odd row slide stitches to other end of needles, pick-up contrast color yarn and knit the even row.
After each even row turn work, pick-up main color yarn and knit the odd row.

Row 2 CC: sl1 wyif, *brp1, sl1yo; rep from* to last 2 sts, brp1, sl1 wyif.

Compact Chart:

In the compact chart are indicated mostly the rows with increases and decreases. Between them are the rows similar to rows 2, 3, and 4 (with the exception of the fact that you have to work the “brkyobrk” stitches from the previous row as: sl1yo, p1, sl1yo and the “br4st inc” stitches from previous row as: sl1yo, p1, sl1yo, p1, sl1yo).
