This reversible woolen scarf with interesting basket weave texture is definitely an eye-catcher. It will be a nice accent in your winter wardrobe while keeping you warm and comfortable in cold weather.
This would be GREAT for a beginning knitter who is bored with knit one row, purl one row and is ready to move on to something a little more challenging. It only has basic knit and purl stitches in it, nothing complicated or fancy. It would also be a GREAT way to begin to learn how to read a pattern, as it is not really very complicated at all. I am a very advanced, experienced knitter, but I liked the basket weave so I decided to make it for myself. It only took me 10 days to make it.
