Pattern Description:

This scarf is a great beginner project that looks more complicated. It only uses about 120 yards of yarn, so those luxury yarns that are soooo soft and yummy are within reach. It makes a special gift without going over budget.

My patterns are written in an easy-to-read large type with few, if any abbreviations. Generally, each different row is fully written out with stitch counts so as a beginner or occasional knitter, the jargon doesn't get in the way. Definitely beginner-friendly!

I include at least 1 full color photo of the finished project.

Kits are available for this project - just add needles!
