Free Knit Scarf Pattern for Beginners!

This is a great scarf for beginning knitters.  I have made several of these for gifts, and my friend Nita makes and sells these at craft shows.


SIZE: One Size (About 5 x 66 in.)

MATERIALS:  1 hank Farmhouse Lumpy Bumpy Wool Yarn or similar
Size 15 Single point Needles
Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

Cast on 12 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): Knit across.
Row 2 (WS): Knit across
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until Scarf measures about 66 in. (167.5 cm) from beginning.
Bind off.

Weave in ends.
Add Fringe if desired

NOTE: Boucle yarns work really well with this type pattern.  Combine more than one yarn to create more interest.  Use larger needles for a looser weave and more drape.
