This scarf was designed (as much as any one person can design a garter stitch scarf) to be a first knitting project. It requires just one stitch – knit. In fact you can find step-by-step photographic instructions in this post: Beginnings Scarf – Step-by-Step Tutorial, if you you don’t know how to knit, or if you need a refresher. It need not be just for beginners though. More advanced knitters will be able to knit this up in a evening or two. Beautiful buttons can make this ultra-simple scarf something extraordinary. Wear it under a blouse, or shirt, as a collar to add extra warmth, or wear it several different ways as a traditional scarf under your winter coat.
Difficulty Rating: Super Simple
Yarn: Berrocco 100% Merino in red, 1.5 balls or approximately 130 yards or 128 meters, or any worsted weight yarn. If you are going to be wearing this against your skin pick something soft and non-irritating.
