This simple scarf is an ideal project for the beginner knitter. Bands of garter stitch frame a simple row of eyelets on a stocking stitch background. Just enough pattern to make this visually interesting, but not enough to make it difficult. Also, the garter stitch helps the scarf lie flat.
approximately 6.5 x 80 inches
