This scarf is a great beginners project as it only uses the two basic stitches - knit and purl.
It is also suitable for more advanced knitters looking for an easy knit.
The pattern is written for 8ply (DK) yarns, however it could be easily adjusted for 10ply (Worsted Weight) yarns that use the same needle size for tension/gauge.
British knitting terms are used in the pattern, any American knitting terms that are different are supplied in the abbreviations section of the pattern.
4.5 stitches to 1 inch in pattern
My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 8, some 40 years later I still love it.
There's just something about being able to use yarn and needles, to create something beautiful and useful.
