SKILLS NEEDED & PRACTICED
Cast On, Knit 1 Purl 1 (1x1 Rib), Slip Stitch, Cast Off, Weaving In Ends, Blocking.
For 4 x 4 swatch, 10 stitches and 16 rows in 1x1 Rib Stitch, unblocked. Don’t sweat it, gauge for this project is not critical!
Approximate measurements are 6 x 45 inches for this 2 skein scarf, this can be adjusted a bit during blocking. If you use 3 skeins, your scarf will be approximately 6 x 68 inches. Or use the 3rd skein to create a long thick fringe. For a wider, shorter scarf, simply cast on more stitches using the gauge above as a guide.
Beginner, very easy, a great second project.
For more experienced knitters, this is a great "mindless knit" and a very quick knit - great for a quick, classic gift!
