Pattern for granddaughter's scarf

If I give an instruction that is incomprehensible, post a comment and I'll try to clear things up. I'm going to put up the instructions for the pattern and not the scarf.

k# - knit specified number of stitches
p# - purl specified number of stitches
sl2tog - slip two stitches as if to knit
p2sso - pass the two slipped stitches over
yo - yarn over
R - Randmacshe (first / last stitch)

NOTE: The pattern is worked over 6 + 1 + 2 stitches. This means the pattern covers 6 stitches plus one stitch to end the pattern on the row as well as one beginning stitch and one ending stitch. In German, the first and last stitches are called Randmaschen and that is how I always think of them. The Randmaschen are never part of the pattern.

Row 1: R, * k1, p1, k3, p1 *, k1, R

Row 2: R, * p1, k1, p3, k1 *, p1, R

Row 3: R, * k1, p1, yo, sl2tog, k1, p2sso, yo, p1 *, k1, R

Row 4: Repeat Row 2

This completes the 4 rows that make up one iteration of the pattern. The asterisks (*) in the pattern rows indicate the 6 stitches of the pattern.

To help the scarf lay flat, it begins and ends with a 5 row rib pattern.

Row 1: R, * k1, p1 *, k1, R

Row 2: R, * p1, k1 *, p1, R

Row 3: Repeat Row 1

Row 4: Repeat Row 2

Row 5: Repeat Row 1
