Scarf for Poppy

In a previous blog post I shared a picture of the first thing I made, which was a shawl for my mother. Here is the link for that pattern: Garter and Lace Wrap

My next project was a scarf for my Dad, modeled by my daughter below:

I found this pattern in a short book I bought at Walmart called Knitting Made Easy. It is a great pattern for beginners.

You can also find the pattern here On The Double Scarf

The pattern calls for size US 13, but you can use any size needle you have, with any yarn you want of course – but that will change the size of the scarf. If you use small needle with thin yarn (fingering for example) you will need to cast on more stitches. If you use a bigger needle, with thick yarn, like “bulky” then you cast on fewer stitches. If you are a beginner, I suggest sticking with what the pattern calls for until you get the hang of it 🙂

You will need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off.
