About me + knitting.....I am self taught and I started about 3 years ago.  I am addicted to making cotton washcloths/dishcloths.  I have also dabbled in scarfs w/ fun fur, and some other random yarns but always with easy patterns.  I like projects that knit up quick and have no overwhelming amount of yarn looming over me.  So, I stick to uncomplicated projects/patterns.  With that being said, I am very pleased that I have actually come up w/ a scarf pattern that is easy and uses affordable and durable yarn and is the perfect size.....YEAH!

Measures 62" x 4" (over 5 feet long Smiley)
1 skein of Paton's Classic Merino Wool
Size 9 Needles
c/o 28 sts.
K2, P2 every row
Can't get any simpler than that.  BUT, you may not like that the edges of the scarf aren't the same.  I think that's what gives it character.Smiley

Here is WIP of the same for my step-dtr, she picked out the yarn like a year ago....but she will def have this before winter as this is my only project that is on needles right now.

Thanks for looking and pls comment as the only feedback I get is from my dear hubby who would never say anything bad Smiley

It looks great! Love the color combos in both those yarns!

Wow, I must be going blind! I stared at that picture for at least 20 seconds and still didn't figure out it wasn't a weird looking, curly sock until I read your post!
Ahem. Moving on.... I agree that one skein patterns are the very best, and I really like your yarn choice for this. It turned out really good!

I think there's a reason your hubby doesn't say anything bad - these are both really good!  So simple and so cute. I love them both.  Grin
