So, I've never knitted once in my short life but I figure I might as well start now, right? I've been trying to learn most things from online and though it's confusing I think I'm understanding it. I figure my first project should be something I want and will (hopefully) enjoy making. So, I want to make a Slytherin P(S)S/CoS scarf. Probably not the best choice for a first time project but sadly that's the only thing I really want (and need) at the moment. Thing is, I can only find the pattern for making one with circle needles and I don't recall seeing one in any of the craft stores in my area. Though to be honest I wasn't really looking.

Basically, can anyone give me a knitting pattern for a PS/CoS scarf that doesn't require circle needles?

Maybe if you could post a pattern someone could adapt it to straight needles for you.

Take the pattern you saw and instead of knitting in the round, just knit flat in rows and seam up. It's probably stockinette, so instead of knit every row, you'd alternate, knit a row, purl a row. Or you might be able to do it in the round on straight needles by double knitting. CO an even number of sts, then k1, slip1 across the row. Turn and do the same on the other row. You knit the sts you slip on the previous row, and slip the ones you knit.

Thanks to both of you but fortunately I found the right needles at JoAnns online store. Hopefully I'll be able to get over to the actual store sometime soon. Now all I have to do is find the right color yarn and figure how much I'm gonna need. Wish me luck!
