This garter stitch scarf pattern is an excellent project for anyone who is learning how to knit.
The scarf is knit in garter stitch, knitting every row until it is super long and cozy!
I wanted to share with you a really easy pattern, that will be perfect to wear during the colder months.
Knit in one color, the project can be customized if you want to add in stripes of other colors.
This would be a great way to use up any leftover yarns in your stash.

The scarf is super easy for beginners because there is only one type of stitch used.
This is the garter stitch, where you knit into every stitch.
You also use large needles – size 9 mm (US 13) to make the scarf.
Knit Only In Garter Stitch
I made the scarf in black yarn, which is notoriously hard to work with because it is difficult to see your stitches.
But knitting in garter stitch makes it easy and obviously you can make this scarf in any color that you want!
You can also adjust the length to make it shorter or even longer if you wish.
