Fun, Fast Scarfs

I've probably made about 100 of these scarfs, seems like for a few years they were a new craze that was getting non-knitters into knitting and re-newing the fever for long-time knitters to pick it up again. No hard fast set rules, here....I've used anywhere from a size 13, 15, 17, 19 needles with 1, 2 or 3 strands of various types of decorative yarns/threads. Depending on yarn, I've used anywhere between 8 to 12 stitches. All you really need to know is how to cast on, garter stitch, and bind off and weave ends in...for these simple scarfs the yarn textures and color is what really makes the scarf. Very fun, can probably knit one of in a little more than an hour, depending on needle size and yarn size and length. I've seen them from short to very, very long. From decorative sweater accessory to warm coat necessity. have fun and try different combos.
