Scarf Knitting Pattern

The scarf is knit in garter stitch, worked flat (back and forth) on straight needles.

This makes it a great pattern for beginners who are learning how to knit.

The scarf size can also be adapted if you want to make it smaller or larger, just adjust the number of stitches you cast on.
