Basic Skills Necessary:

  • simple crochet (for the edge) but not required
  • knitting back and forth on circular needles to accommodate the number of stitches
  • yarn over
  • knit front and back

Pattern Description:

This is an easy, advanced beginner pattern. Great project for car trips as it is a two row repeat. Easily make it larger or smaller. Would look gorgeous in a long run yarn!

Beautiful Madeline Tosh in a neutral colorway makes a nice size using 2 skeins. If you are a "one skein stasher" a scarflette would make a nice neck warmer.

If crochet is not your thing, a simple garter stitch border will keep the edge from rolling and still look great!

The crocheted edge in a contrasting color would be stunning! A cotton weight with larger needles would be great for the warmer months and give a breezy, open weave effect.

Check out the Craftsy Yarn Shop for some gorgeous yarn!
