So I am teaching the two girlie-girl nieces knitting and I needed a really easy project.  This is what I came up with.  It uses a large yarn and large needles so it should be easy for little hands, not to mention done much faster.
Directions: Start with 1 skein of Chenille Thick & Quick (Lionbrand) and size 13US
needles.  Cast on 25 stitches and start knitting. Knit until the wrap goes all the way around you.  (I used the whole skein and it is 14 inches by a bit over 1 yard.)  Cast off.  Add thick ribbon to two corners that share a long side.  I sewed mine in place but you can probably just knot it.
To wear: Tie either in front (left) or behind your back (right)

This is a really good option for a piece I was considering posting in the Stitch-n-Botch section........

I love this! I'm teaching my boyfriend's sister how to knit next time we visit, this would be a great starter project for her!

Look!  I'm on the internets!:

I reallly like this too. It's a great idea for a beginner project. Seems much more exciting than a scarf or dishcloth, yet still so easy.

What kind of stitch did you use?  Is it a stockinette?  What kind of edging?

Too cute, when Ive got some time Im going to do this, but modify it to make it longer. You just knitted a rectangle right? Not a Diamond like a pancho?

Yes, it's a rectangle.  It will stretch a bit while you are wearing it but you can reshape it easily.  Wink

Oh, I really like this idea.  Seems like such a good way to use up some extra yarn I've got lying around, plus, while I crochet very well, I am just starting to learn to knit and could use more easy projects to convince me that I shouldn't despair and  flee to the safety of my crochet hooks.
