My ability to convert a pattern into one that a beginner can make. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This pattern requires a set of 40" to 60" circular needles because you actually knit the scarf sideways. Because of costs involved for beginners, I went to ebay and found Chinese sellers that manufacture sets of circular bamboo needles for very little cost. I like the bamboo better because it is not as slippery and helps prevent dropped stitches. These needles have their own attached cable (not interchangeable) and come in a set of one each -- size 0 through 15. So I got 15 needle sets all together for under $10. This pattern is done completely in garter stitch so the only other techniques required are making your swatch, doing the math, and changing yarn every inch or so.
