No-Fail Lace Scarf
can be confusing the first time you try it.This pattern is designed to
make it easy. You will easily memorize the pattern, which will soon
allow you to knit without looking at the instructions. In between lace
panels are several rows of garter stitch. These allow you to rip back
easily if you make a mistake. The pattern gives instructions for making
the scarf shawl width as well.
This pattern is VERY detailed in its how-to. It tells you…
* How to read a lace chart.
* Howto understand written lace directions.
* How to make an SSK (and why you should care about it).
* How to knit 2 together.
* How to make a yarn-over and what it should look like.
* How to fix the lace if you make a mistake.
* How to block lace.
pretty scarf is as easy as knitting and purling--but gives an
interesting texture with no curling! The two sides look different, but
both are pretty enough to be the “front” of the scarf. Try it in a
self-striping yarn for added enjoyment. This pattern gives options for
different widths and yarn weights.
you've never done the brioche stitch before, here's the place to begin.
We'll start with just one color so that the stitch becomes a habit!

This scarf is the perfect way to learn to knit. It starts slowly and easily, with one repeated skill (the knit stitch), and then gives a little kick of new skills at the end (increasing, stockinette, and ribbing). If you're more experienced, it's perfect for TV knitting.
Team colors tend to be bold, dramatic combinations--gold and green, orange and blue, red and black. Make use of this drama with a super-long (to be super-spirited), happily striped scarf!
This scarf is worked from end to end in long stripes. Because of the garter stitch, the edges do not curl.
If you can cast on, knit, and cast off, you can make this scarf.
Pick two colors for your school, and enjoy a scarf you will be proud of!
Instructions include multiple gauges--from fingering- to bulky-weight yarn.
Swirling Ruffles is an easy, sweet little scarf that can be made with any yarn. It gives you a picture tutorial on doing short-rows, in case you have never done them before.
Your gauge or yarn weight actually makes no difference. Heavier yarns will make bigger scarves. Just get a fabric that you like, and knit till it’s the length you please!

pattern is a tutorial on double knitting. Knitting across one row,
you’ll create what are actually two pieces of stockinette fabric, with
their purl sides against each other. You’re using one color on one side,
and the other on the other side. But you’re knitting them at the same
time instead of separately.
Practicing on this easy scarf will give you the ability to double knit more difficult patterns later.
Choose either two solid contrasting yarns, or one self-striping yarn and one contrasting solid yarn for your first try. This way you can easily distinguish between your two sides as you go. Choose something that knits at 4.5-5 stitches per inch.
