This supersized knitted scarf is just the thing for the absolute beginner – or the more competent knitter. The pattern includes two variations on the scarf. If you’re just learning, (or you want a project that you don’t have to think about too much) the garter stitch scarf is for you, it couldn’t be simpler, and it’s wide enough to be a shoulder shrug, or a wrap around scarf. It’s easy to wear and easy to make.
If your knitting skills stretch beyond garter stitch and you love a bit of texture, why not make the bramble and moss stitch version? – it’s a classic. Both styles would make beautiful gifts for the significant men in your life- who aren’t always as appreciative as they should be of those hand knit jumpers.
Woolyknit aran would be a good choice for this; it has a yardage of 77m/85yds per 50 gms
