Here's what I came up with - an easy scarf pattern.

- w+t = wrap and turn, e.g. shown here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4GxFvi4KD0
- how to pick up the wraps is shown here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xaz41JTkLc
I used one skein (200 grams) of (probably) super bulky yarn and 8mm needles.
Row 1: k
Row 2: k to 3 sts before end of row w+t
Row 3: k to end
Row 4: k to 3 sts before gap w+t (where gap is the last w+t)
Row 5: k to end
Repeat rows 4 and 5 until there are only 3 stitches per row
Row 14: knit all picking up the wrapped stitches
You have now completed the first wedge.
The picture shows how the wedges add up to a scarf. Since one wedge consists of 13 rows (i.e. an odd number of rows), each wedge starts at the opposite edge of the previous one.
Repeat rows 2 to 14 until you reach the desired length.
Bind off in the row 14 of last wedge picking up the wrapped stitches.
