A year ago, I learned how to knit. My first project: a blanket (which I still haven`t finished)! Looks like a lifetime project… (Just kidding.) As much as I love knitting the little squares for this blanket, I needed a change. I wanted to knit something easy and something that I can wear. So I decided to knit a scarf. And I can tell you, even if you`re a beginner, you can do this one, because it`s an easy pattern.
So here`s how to do it:
- I used this wool and I needed five balls of it. Of course you can use another wool, you just need to make sure that it is a similar one. I used size ten circular needles. So make sure that your wool should also be knitted with size ten needles.
- The pattern:
Cast on 26 stitches.
In the first row, alternate with 2 stitches right and then 2 stitches left. 2 stitches right, 2 stitches left until the row is finished.
In the second row, do 2 stitches left and then 2 stitches right and so on.
In the third row, you repeat the second row. (2 stitches left, 2 stitches right)
In the fourth row, you repeat the first row. (2 stitches right, 2 stitches left)
This is the pattern repetition.
Now you have to repeat it until the scarf is approximately 166cm long. Then cast off and weave in the ends. And then you just have to join the two ends of the scarf by stitching them together. That`s it!
I really like how it turned out! I chose the color black, because it fits with everything. But I think I will knit this scarf in other colors too. You can never have enough scarfs, right?
In the pictures you can see my sister. I gave her the scarf as a gift for Christmas, because self-made gifts are my favorite!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
