This is a really easy scarf to knit, but it includes a cool fringe-making technique from designer Melissa Leapman. Dana’s Scarf is cast on along the long edge and worked until the desired width is reached. Play with different yarns and needle sizes -- gauge doesn’t matter, but a loosely knit fabric looks great!
Here, in pattern form is the striped pillow cover from my Beginning Knitting class, along with a matching “squared” pillow cover. Knit with worsted weight yarn, although you can use a different weight of yarn to create a larger or smaller pillow. Use one color or many colors to create the effect you desire.
