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! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on knit decrease by knitting 2 stitches together increase by knitting into the front and the back of a stitch bind off GAUGE not important for this project - yeah!

I've always made things as long as I can remember. Both my Mom and Dad were"makers", so it just was what you did! The handcrafted item was always respected and expected in my family. Mom taught me how to knit, which was a challenge, as she was left-handed and I'm right-handed! Knitting is the one art and craft that I always return to through the years. My other favorites are marbling, bookbinding, calligraphy and beading. It's especially fun to try and combine all of my favorites into one design! I can add sewing to the favorites list again after taking the "Couture Dress" class on Craftsy - I hadn't sewn for myself in a long time because fitting and the way patterns are done frustrated me to no end - the class gave me a whole new way to approach sewing and I'm enjoying it again.
