We recommend this for beginners! An easy stitch pattern, that will help the beginner work with colors, with no difficulty! Now you can use up scraps of yarn for colors, and gather your friends, and teach them to knit this useful, cute scarf! Finished size is about 6 by 45. A good size for most people. Kids love knitting this for their first project, as they watch the colors grow and change right before their eyes! A fun project! Uses worsted weight yarns, knitting needles, US # 10, and we recommend a circular needle to accommodate stitches.
