Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy scarves
by Stana D. S.
These are very basic patterns, but the results are delightful and warm.
Yarn: 1 or 2 balls of medium or sport weight yarn. The yarn needs to be soft to the touch and very colorful, preferable in the child's favorite colors.
Recommended Needles size: For these scarves I have used US#7/4.5mm. I personally usually use one size smaller than the yarn manufacture recommends.
Notions: Scissors, crochet hook.
Decide which pattern to use and cast on 20sts. Begin to work.
Pattern # 1:
Knit all rows.
Row 1: *Knit 1, Purl 1; repeat from *
Row 2: *Purl 1, Knit 1; repeat from *
Repeat these 2 rows.

This pattern makes a small checker squares.
Keep knitting until desired length is reached. To make the scarves more texture interesting change the various patterns: For example knit 5" (12.7cm) in pattern #1, switch to pattern # 3 for the next 10" (25.4cm), switch back to pattern #1 for the next 5" (12.7cm), switch to pattern # 3 for the next 10" (25.4cm). The last pattern used should be the same as the first pattern, just to keep the symmetry. The changing of the patterns will make the knitting less boring and monotonous.
The scarves I have knitted are around 50" (127cm) long and 5.5" (14cm) wide.
Finishing: Cut the yarn for fringes. Take two pieces of cut yarn and bend in half.With a crochet hook pull about half of the yarn through the edge of scarf. Pull the ends of yarn through the eye and make a knot. For easy way to have all fringes cut the same lenght check out my next post.
