Swervy Scarf

This is another free pattern for a totally simple scarf. You know that straight garter stitch scarf every one is obligated to make when they learn to knit? Well, this is that scarf, with a little of the usual boredom sucked out of it.


Swervy Scarf

Here's a good beginner scarf. It's all garter stitch, but with a little interest added. Use any textured or interesting yarn, and let the yarn do the work for you. Use your imagination! Mohair? Eyelash? Something slubby? Something metallic? Use several different yarns held together if you like. Each one you make can be unique, and this scarf makes a good and quick gift.
I used Lion Brand Homespun in Candy Apple because of the softness and texture.
Don't limit yourself by only using the yarn and needle size I have listed here. Use any yarn you wish, of course with its appropriate needle size. :))

I have one skein of Homespun left over. My daughter has knit a couple of garter stitch scarves and finds them boring now. This is a perfect new project for her. Thank you!
