Stripy Tube Scarf
When you knit a scarf in the round with thick yarn and bigger needles, it will go fast even though it is long. This is why when you’re a new knitter, the only type of scarf I would recommend knitting is a tube scarf with color changes to make stripes. You could make the stripes match the Stripy Hat to make a set, or you could make a separate scarf with different colors. Be creative!

Note: The scarf can be made longer or shorter in length; just bind off whenever you are ready.
